Calvary Hospital Honors Alma Carrington, MD
with 2010 Meviar Smith Humanitarian Award
BRONX, NEW YORK -- Calvary Hospital recently honored Alma Carrington, MD with the 2010 Annual Meviar Smith Humanitarian Award. The award, which has been bestowed since 1988, was created to honor the memory of 28-year Calvary veteran, Meviar Smith. Until her death in 1987, Meviar was famous for her loyalty, conscientious work ethic, and dedication to the patients at Calvary Hospital. This year’s selection committee felt that Dr. Carrington best demonstrated the qualities for which Meviar was known.
Dr. Alma Carrington first joined Calvary in 1994, as a part-time physician. She became full-time in 2001. She previously spent 13 years as an internist at a practice based in New Rochelle.
Dr. Carrington appreciates Calvary as a place that is continuing to evolve, as a reflection of the changes that are taking place in medicine. “Today, the success of a medical facility is measured by an administration and staff that are committed to the delivery of excellent health care. Every day, in every way, our administration and staff prove their dedication and commitment to our patients and families. I am proud to be part of the Calvary team, and I am honored by this wonderful recognition.”
Dr. Carrington is Board-certified in Internal Medicine and Palliative and Hospice Care. In addition to her position at Calvary, Dr. Carrington has served on the Board of Directors for the United Hebrew Geriatric Center (New Rochelle) for eight years. She resides in Greenwich, CT, with her son, Matthew.
