LITTLETON — Littleton Regional Hospital's Chief Nursing Officer Koren Superchi became the 2021 recipient of the Raymond S. Burton Littleton Business Leader of the Year award during the organization's 29th annual economic luncheon, held at the Littleton Elks Lodge on Nov. 22.

LRH President and CEO Bob Nutter said he was honored to present the award to Superchi for her work in ensuring public health and safety during the pandemic.

"As an organization, we have worked tirelessly over the past two years to overcome many of the challenges with COVID-19. Providing access to widespread community testing and administering vaccines, once they became available, was a huge effort on our part and a huge passion of ours to meet your needs and the needs of the entire region," stated Nutter.

Working closely with Chief Medical Officer and LRH Executive Vice President Dr. Ed Duffy, Superchi immersed herself into the pandemic from the onset, and continued to devote most of her time to the ever-changing issues associated with COVID-19, added the medical leader.

"We see things that are constantly changing two to three times a day, while you might only see them every now and then on the news. We wanted to make an effort to get out and educate our community, to make sure everyone knew what was going on and the difference between some of the stuff you hear on the TV and some of the real stuff that we're dealing with," added Nutter.

Since March 2020, Superchi has been instrumental in organizing and executing LRH's COVID-19 testing sites and vaccination clinics. Nutter noted that she'd rallied the LRH workforce on several mass vaccination clinics in 2021, often with little advanced notice.

"One time, it was 17 below zero, and our staff was out there. Many of you remember that one Saturday in late February when we vaccinated about 1,200 citizens in the community. The recipient of this year's business leader award embodies all of the qualities of someone most deserving of this award. This individual continues to serve LRH, its patients and staff and our region with the utmost dedication and unwavering commitment. I speak on behalf of the other LRH people with us, our Board of Trustees and all of you in recognizing the hard work. It is an honor and a privilege to work alongside Koren Superchi. I mean that from the bottom of my heart," added Nutter.

Superchi received a standing ovation as she accepted her award.
