Erika Edinger, LPN is a 2022 LeadingAge New York Employee of Distinction Award recipient. Erika, who has been with St. Luke for twelve years, will be honored by Leading Age NY during a Statewide virtual event scheduled for later this Fall.

The Employee of Distinction Award acknowledges the extraordinary efforts of front - line staff working in long-term care settings like St. Luke Health Services. The award recognizes caregivers who are exemplary in their willingness to go above and beyond to improve the lives of frail elderly New Yorkers – those who bring a special compassion and personal commitment to their job each and every day.
