Sean McVeigh, MD, Thanked for Leadership

(Honesdale, PA, May 1, 2020) … After working alongside Board-certified Pulmonologist Sean McVeigh, MD, for four years, but especially during the COVID-19 outbreak, Kelly Gregory, a medical assistant at the Honesdale Pulmonary office, jumped at the chance to nominate him as a “well deserving hero.”  The nomination put him in line to receive a special hand-crafted wooden cross from Grain to Glory, a local business that prides itself on producing products “made in America.”

“Doctor McVeigh has been a strong calming force throughout this crisis,” said Gregory, “I am so proud to work in his office, where I see his rapport with staff and patients. He keeps us going day after day.”

Gregory submitted Dr. McVeigh for the hero award via Facebook, where Grain to Glory had called for nominations.  She cited Dr. McVeigh’s leadership with Wayne Memorial Hospital’s Incident Command Team, “where he has been a reassuring presence.”  Her nomination was quickly seconded by Jessica Giannetti, a certified registered nurse practitioner with Highland Family Physicians, part of Wayne Memorial Community Health Centers.

After Dr. McVeigh’s name was chosen to receive a cross, Grain to Glory owner Ryan Thumann said he was pleased to find out that Dr. McVeigh is also a veteran of the U.S. Navy. Thumann sees his donation as a way of “blessing those who deserve it” for all they’ve done during this health crisis.

Dr. McVeigh, surprised and thankful for the cross, reciprocated his gratitude for all who have stepped up during this difficult time, “I am appreciative of the ongoing community support. It makes a big impact with the staff, and we are all grateful to serve this community.”
