Dr. Frank and Judy Zsoldos were given this year’s NMC Community Service award at an Incorporator’s meeting at the hospital, Monday May 9.
NMC Board Secretary Janet McCarthy presented the award on behalf of the board to the “dynamic duo,” and thanked them for their nearly 40 years of kind caring and humble commitment to the local community.
“They both have given generously of their time, talent and treasure,” she said.
In addition to running his medical practice for so many years, Dr. Zsoldos served on the Board of Directors of both Frankling County Home Health and NMC. He was the Medical Director of Redstone Villa, Verdelle Village, Holiday House and Franklin County Rehabilitation. He has taken an active role in the American Cancer Society, the American Heart Association, the Knights of Columbus, Collins Perley Sports Center and more.
Judy Zsoldos enjoyed a successful career as both a registered nurse and practice leader in primary care. She is also a master gardener and enjoys traveling, music and the arts. Her latest passion for the arts is seen in her enthusiastic participation and support of the St. Albans Society for the Performing Arts.
Together the couple raised two children and has welcomed a grandson into their life. The two have been in the spotlight of “Cardiac Capers” since its inception – always singing, dancing and acting in challenging and humorous roles. They have also stepped forward to successfully chair the family division of NMC’s current Capital Campaign.
The Zsoldoses are the fourth recipient of the NMC Community Service award, which was established by NMC’s Board of Directors to recognize an individual or organization residing in Franklin or Grand Isle Counties who exhibits enthusiasm, integrity, and perseverance beyond the ordinary to help fellow citizens and the community through selfless giving to improve the overall health of the community—be it money, talent, or time. Previous honorees include the late Dr. Thomas Howrigan of Fairfield, Marcia Perry of Richford and Helene Biggie of St. Albans.
The Zsoldoses were presented with a cut-glass maple leaf award, and their names were inscribed on a plaque in NMC’s Conference Center.
