Dr. Golioto 4-30-15Neonatologist Dr. Annmarie Golioto, HOCC chief of Pediatrics, 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 in March at the foundation’s annual Shamrockin’ for Kids dinner dance. The nomination reflected Golioto’s role as a leader in the pursuit of HOCC’s designation as a Baby Friendly Hospital by Baby Friendly USA, Inc, an honor HOCC received last summer. This distinction recognizes hospitals that offer an optimal level of care for infant feeding including support for breastfeeding mothers and their babies.

Golioto also serves on HOCC’s Lactation Council, Women’s and Infants Steering Committee and leads the hospital’s Newborn Council. She joined the hospital in 2013. Golioto was nominated for the award by Kate Sims, RN MBA, Regional Director of Women & Children Service Line.
