Wallingford, CT, May 22, 2012… Jo-Ann Persson, a Hospice RN Case Manager with the Brookfield@ Newtown office of Masonicare Home Health & Hospice, was recently awarded a Nightingale Award for Excellence in Nursing at a statewide awards program held on Thursday, May 10, at the Stamford Hilton Hotel in Stamford.
