"Miss Divine Duck" took one of the most coveted awards at the 2011 Duck Race to End Racism on Saturday, June 11. The judges proclaimed Crouse Hospital's entry as the "Most Creative Duck" of the competition!

Congratulations and thanks go to two of Crouse's "Most Creative Employees" -- Debra Brown and Dorcas Rodriguez, from our Health Information Management Department. They created Divine, as well as "Momma Crouse and Her Diverse Duckies," which won the 2009 award for the duck that best represented the mission and spirit of the annual event.

Do you have any idea how many religions Crouse Hospital’s Spiritual Care Department supports? All faiths – as represented here by Miss Divine Duck, proudly sporting her Crouse Hospital prayer shawl! She represents the “Spiritual Presence for All” that our Spiritual Care team members so deftly provide for our patients and staff under the direction of Rev. Katherine Day.

Miss Divine sits atop a classical Indian “mandala,” which is a structure organized around a unifying center that represents every aspect of spirituality. The center reads “united as one” and is surrounded by symbols of different faiths. She is a reminder of our diverse culture centering around community and respect, representing that the Crouse family is united in caring for our community, regardless of spiritual beliefs and cultural practices.

Crouse Hospital is proud to have been a Corporate Sponsor of the event again this year. We congratulate all the other winners today and salute Inter-Faith Works and their Community Wide Dialogue to End Racism program, the longest-running dialogue program on ending racism in the United States.
