NORTHEAST WISCONSIN – Clint Schaefer, executive director of security for Hospital Sisters Health System (HSHS) hospitals in Wisconsin, was recently awarded a Patriot Award, which was established by the Department of Defense, in recognition of support of employees serving in the Wisconsin National Guard and Reserve.

“The Patriot Award is presented to employers who not only hire guard and reserve members but demonstrate superior support to the military employee and his/her family,” Scott Legwold, Wisconsin State chair of the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve, the organization that presented the award to Schaefer, said.

Schaefer was nominated by Michael Aschinger, manager of security for HSHS hospitals in Green Bay, Sheboygan and Oconto Falls and command sergeant major in the U.S. Army Reserve.

“My role in the U.S. Army Reserve encompasses much more than the traditional one weekend a month and two weeks of service in the summer,” Aschinger said. “From the beginning of my employment with HSHS, Clint has provided a level of support and understanding about my service that can be rare in the civilian sector. He is a model leader allowing me to both serve my country and our HSHS hospitals effectively.”

Schaefer serves as executive director of security for all six HSHS hospitals across Wisconsin, including HSHS St. Vincent Hospital and HSHS St. Mary’s Hospital Medical Center in Green Bay, HSHS St. Nicholas Hospital in Sheboygan and HSHS St. Clare Memorial Hospital in Oconto Falls.

He also served three years as a military police officer in the U.S. Army in Europe.

“On behalf of HSHS hospitals across Wisconsin, we congratulate Clint on this honorable recognition and thank him for his dedication and leadership in the safety of our ministries,” Brian Charlier, interim president and CEO of HSHS hospitals in Wisconsin, said. “We also sincerely thank all of our colleagues, like Clint and Mike, and providers across Wisconsin who not only serve our hospitals, but our country as well.”
