Northport High School senior Sofia Sawchuk has been volunteering at St. Catherine of Siena Medical Center in Smithtown for the past two years and recently helped the hospital bring their medical mission to life through art. Their core value, I-CARE—an acronym for integrity, compassion, accountability, responsibility, and excellence—was expressed by way of Sofia’s artistic design, and hung in the medical office’s executive board room.

Her mission-driven artwork was honored at a special gathering on Feb. 15. The hospital expressed their gratitude towards Sofia and all of her creative and volunteering efforts.

“I thought about the mission statement and considered what images would best marry to each piece,” said Sofia. “The design is what they mean to me and how I hope they would speak to others who may visit the hospital...and I’m so thrilled to see this project come to life.”
