After 30 years, July 31, 2020 was JoAnn Lindner’s last day at the Joseph P. Addabbo Family Health Center. There were celebrations of her service and many well wishes from her co-workers, all of whom were sad to see her retire but eager to have her experience some serious relaxation!
JoAnn Lindner, MA, came to work at the Joseph P. Addabbo Family Health Center on December 18, 1989. The weather that day was cold, around 25 degrees (according to weather history), but since that cold first day at work, JoAnn warmed up every day with her bright smile and welcoming demeanor. Over the years, JoAnn has greeted thousands of patients with that smile which we know made it a better day for many of them. What a legacy she leaves as she departs for new adventures and open highways. Le-Nise Watson-Hudson, MSN, RN, Director of Nursing at Addabbo, paid tribute to Ms. Lindner’s years of service:
