During its annual physician recognition dinner, held Nov. 16, members of the Heywood Healthcare medical staff were honored for their commitment to their patients and the greater Athol and Gardner communities.

Long-time area physicians lauded included ophthalmologist Dr. Stuart S. Fay, who celebrated 50 years as a member of the Heywood Medical Staff, and Dr. David N. Havlin, family physician, and Dr. Francis A. D’Ambrosio, Jr., ophthalmologist, who were both recognized for 30 years as part of the Heywood Medical Staff.

During the event, George Krasowski, MD, was presented with the James A. Faust Pillar Award for Physician Excellence, the highest honor Heywood Healthcare bestows on its physicians.
