Sister Jane Marie Klein, chairwoman Franciscan Alliance, presided during a recent Missioning Ceremony where Daniel McCormick, MD, was installed as Franciscan Health Crown Point president and chief executive officer. The program took place in the hospital’s Corpus Christi Chapel.
Sister Jane Marie presented to Dr. McCormick a variety of symbols of leadership, among them a replica San Damiano Crucifix, shown here. That cross is said to have spoken to St. Francis at the beginning of his conversion and symbolizes the love and compassion required to lead the hospital in its quality and excellence efforts. Prior to his appointment, Dr. McCormick had served as hospital vice president of medical affairs since 2014.
