The award recognizes excellence in the workplace and community.

    Grace, who has been with Bassett Healthcare Network since 2008, is a family practice physician and medical director for Bassett’s Little Falls primary care health center. In this role she is responsible for the care of more than 2,000 patients and also provides clinical oversight of a family nurse practitioner and another physician at the Little Falls practice.

    In addition to her commitment to her patients, Dr. Grace has volunteered with the local Pop Warner football league, providing sports physicals for the teams.

In this capacity, she provides grade-level and athletic physicals, and she reviews school medical policies and procedures to assure compliance with pertinent regulations.

    "I really enjoy being part of the community of Little Falls and providing care to the people of the Mohawk Valley," said Grace. "All three of our children have participated in athletics here, and I have been in awe of the countless hours that volunteer coaches spend coaching youth sports. I started volunteering with Pop Warner football as a way to contribute to the programs that have benefited our children so positively – and I love football!

    "I am fortunate to have Katie Scanlon, FNP, and Dr. Taylen Peaden as colleagues, They, along with every member of the staff here, share the same vision of providing quality and compassionate care to our patients in Little Falls."
