Greenwich, CT (Nov. 15, 2018) – Fairfield County Business Journal honored Mark Anthony Abille, RN, as one of the 2018 Milli Award winners. Abille is the clinical coordinator of the hospitals Post-Anesthesia Care Unit and has worked at the hospital for more than 10 years. He was selected along with 19 others from hundreds of applications across Westchester and Fairfield Counties. They were all recognized at an event Wednesday night in White Plains, NY.
Abille, 34, is a leader at the hospital, training colleagues on new techniques. He spearheaded work with the Anesthesia department on peripheral nerve blocks – an alternative form of pain management to avoid overuse of opioids post-operatively. When he’s not being a nurse, father or husband, Mark donates his time to the Filipino American League in Connecticut. The group is responsible for collecting clothing, food and money towards disaster recovery, as well building schools for children.
“It is an honor to work with such an accomplished and dedicated individual,” said his manager Helene Kimmons. “Mark is kind and considerate, always smiling and taking on extra work to improve patient care and the hospital overall.”
Sponsored by Westfair Communications, the Milli Awards serve as a way to recognize standout local young professionals aged 21 to 34. As part of the ceremony, the award winners were asked to give their thoughts on how they would like future generations to view the millennials’ contribution to the business world and the wider society. Abille said he hoped the next generation – Generation Z – would consider millennials as both an inspiration for and a partner in their endeavors. “I know that if we all work together, we can make this world a better place,” he said.
