Former Director of St. Joseph’s General Hospital honored…..

4- in Canada - Date of publication 11-22-2005
Eugene Rudyk, a long time collaborator and friend of the Sisters of Évron, retired last June from his position of Chief Executive Officer at St. Joseph’s General Hospital in Vegreville, Alberta, Canada…….

Mr. Eugene Rudyk had also worked with the Sisters of Évron in their hospital in Tisdale, Saskatchewan so during his career he was associated with Catholic Health Care for thirty-two years.  Eugene also worked in the public hospital system for eight years

This faithful and dedicated leader gave untiringly of his talents and energy to ensure adequate, competent and compassionate care to all those requiring care and services in the communities where he lived and worked.   Always an enthusiastic advocate for the most vulnerable as well as for those who cared for them, Eugene was consistently steadfast and uncompromising when unjust or unfair conditions threatened the well being of those who could not defend themselves.

During his career in health services administration, he was also very active in many community and church organizations taking a lead role in many of these groups.  As a health care professional he also served on numerous committees and Boards which advocated for adequate standards in the provision of competent care as well as safe and satisfactory working conditions. 

In October of 2005, Eugene was honored by the Christian Health Association of Alberta and was presented with the Citation Award which recognizes an outstanding contribution to Catholic-Christian health care in Alberta.  In his acceptance speech, Eugene spoke of the numerous individuals who in the past has received this award and added that for him it was a truly humbling experience to be included among these worthy recipients.   The St Joseph’s General Hospital Board of Directors nominated Mr. Rudyk for the reward and he thanked them for their support through the years.   Eugene also offered his sincere appreciation and gratitude to the Sisters for their direction, support and leadership indicating that he shared this honor with the many Sisters he had worked with.  In his conclusion he spoke of the many challenges that remain for Christian Health Care and asked God to continue with many blessings to this important mission in our Province.

Eugene and his wife, Carol, have visited Evron twice.  They have five children and ten grandchildren who keep them young and vibrant.  They continue to make their home in Vegreville.    All the Sisters add their congratulations and good wishes to this very committed couple and ask God to bless them and their family.

Perrine has been present in the West of Canada for a hundred years in the person of the Sisters who took up a challenge and accomplished a great acheivement. Each one left her own corner of Mayenne to go to “the other end of the earth” as people said at the time and we can imagine the strong faith that motivated them.
