Hospital announces employee, departmental awards

During its annual Christmas party Friday afternoon, Bryan W. Whitfield Memorial Hospital announced its award recipients for Employee of the Year and Department of the Year.

The Department of the Year Award went to the Diagnostic Imaging Department. Selection of the honor is based on numerous factors including whether the department met its budget for the year. The selection process also includes a vote by the Employee Relations Committee. Qualifying departments are then submitted to senior management for consideration.

Ronnie Abrams, Randy Dearman and Donald Richardson received the award on behalf of the department.

The hospital also recognized Marsha Pugh of the Human Resources Department as its Employee of the Year. Pugh becomes the first BWWMH employee to hold the honor three times in her career after having first received the distinction in 1995 and again in 2004.
