Recognizing outstanding service by its physicians, associates and volunteers, St. Vincent's Health Services proudly announced its Physician of the Year and Employees of the Year last week.

Each year, all St. Vincent's employees celebrating a milestone anniversary with the organization are recognized for their dedication.

This year, associates were recognized for five to 40 years of service, including Trumbull residents Anet Surrusco and Sarah Zopfi.

Surrusco, the director of information technology for St. Vincent's College, was named St. Vincent’s College Employee of the Year.

In this hectic environment, Anet is always ready for a challenge, offering a warm and cheerful attitude and addressing all situations with kindness and patience, a press release said.

“She works hard and always tries to lift the spirits of those around her with her positive attitude,” the release added.

Sarah Zopfi, who was named Special Needs Services Employee of the Year, is celebrating her 21st anniversary with St. Vincent's Health Services.

She has the unique distinction of being certified in both Speech and Language Pathology and Special Education.

“Sarah is guided by compassion and the desire for students to achieve their fullest potential and quality of life,” a press release.

Surrusco and Zopfi weren’t the only employees with a Trumbull connection who celebrated at the awards banquet.

Trumbull physician Jared Selter, a cardiologist, was named the 2015 Physician of the Year.

A Fairfield resident, Dr. Selter was nominated for his dedication and compassion when caring for his patients.

“He goes above and beyond, spending an extraordinary amount of time caring for vulnerable patients at the St. Vincent's Family Health Clinic,” a press release said.

After receiving his medical degree from the Mount Sinai School of Medicine, Dr. Selter completed an Internship and Residency at Yale New Haven Hospital.
