Deborah Cronin-Waelde, RN, coordinator of the Hallmark Health Bone and Joint Program, was recognized during a recent presentation at Anthony’s in Malden. She has been with Hallmark Health for more than 20 years and is a resident of Melrose.

“I love my nursing career and it transcends my personal life as well,” Cronin-Waelde said during her acceptance speech. “I am truly blessed and fortunate to be surrounded on a daily basis by the most competent, caring and compassionate group of nursing professionals you will ever meet.”

“Women Making a Difference” is the Zonta Club of Malden’s way of honoring those that offer service work to the community and make a difference by going out of their way to help others.

“Deb is a very special person whose nursing care, compassion and care for the community makes her such a deserving individual for this recognition and honor,” said Steve Kapfhammer, executive vice president of Melrose-Wakefield Hospital. “It’s people like Deb that make Hallmark Health a better place.”
