Hospital of Central Connecticut pediatrician receives "Above and Beyond" award

[April 12 2012] - Noelle Leong, M.D., a pediatrician at The Hospital of Central Connecticut, recently received the Above and Beyond award from The Mill Foundation for Kids, Inc.

The award recognizes individuals who go above and beyond in their daily duties to enrich the lives of sick children and who consistently exceed the expectations of their peers and patients, according to the Southington-based foundation.

The award was presented March 10 at the foundation's annual Shamrockin' for Kids dinner dance at the Aqua Turf Club in Southington. The foundation also donated $2,500 to the hospital to support pediatric services.

Leong joined The Hospital of Central Connecticut in 2008 and as a pediatrician in the hospital's Outpatient Clinic has been touching the lives of children and families in the Central Connecticut community from the start. When she is not busy caring for her patients, she is a teacher and mentor to medical students and fellow clinic staff.

The Mill Foundation for Kids is dedicated to brightening the lives of ill children by purchasing toys and other gifts that are donated to The Hospital of Central Connecticut and other area hospitals.
