Good Shepherd Hospice Presents Living the Mission Award to Coram Resident

Farmingdale, NY — Good Shepherd Hospice (GSH) presented its Living the Mission Award to Home Health Aide Shaneik Brown for exemplifying Catholic Health Services’s (CHS) mission and values. Nominated for her outstanding qualities, Brown was recently honored at GSH’s Farmingdale office.


Brown’s peers have noted her extraordinary selflessness in assisting those in need, her positive attitude and work ethic. Her colleagues praised for her “pleasant, professional and personable” qualities in caring for her patients.


The Coram resident has been part of Catholic Health Services since 2015, representing the agency at the Long Island State Veterans Home. Prior to joining CHS, she worked as a customer service representative and cashier.


Brown was attracted to CHS and its core values of integrity, compassion, accountability, respect and excellence.  She plans to attend school to further pursue a career within the nursing field in the near future.
