Holy Cross Hospital Associate of the Year 2015 Susy Jaen Ruffolo

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (May 14, 2015) – For being a catalyst for change and innovation, Holy Cross Hospital Inpatient Therapy Coordinator Susy Jaen Ruffolo has been named the Fort Lauderdale non-profit hospital’s Associate of the Year.

“Susy does not let ‘no’ or ‘it’s not my job’ stop her in her quest to achieve the best outcomes for our patients throughout the hospital,” said Holy Cross Hospital President and CEO Patrick A. Taylor, M.D. “Both her clinical and leadership skills make her a star performer.”

Ruffolo supervises the physical therapy team in the hospital's inpatient rehab services department, assists with day-to-day operations, and coaches patients. Her achievements include reducing the discharge time by half for patients going home from the hospital and designing a new user friendly website for pre-surgical patients.

Ruffolo came to Holy Cross Hospital in 2010 soon after graduating from the University of Florida with a Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) degree.
