murray calloway hosp1MURRAY, Ky. (8/16/14) — Murray-Calloway County Hospital recently recognized more than 130 employees at the 36th annual Service Awards Banquet for reaching a milestone in their years of service at both MCCH and at Spring Creek Health Care.

The banquet was 70s-themed and held in the Curris Center Ballroom at Murray State University to honor employees reaching a milestone in service. Recent retirees and employees with more than 20 years of service but not celebrating a milestone year were also honored. In total, the employees celebrating milestones represented more than 1,775 combined years of service.

Musical entertainment was provided during the dinner, and MCCH CEO Jerry Penner delivered opening remarks and honored those with 30, 25 and 40-year service milestones. Hospital chaplain Kerry Lambert gave the invocation and John Wilson, vice president of Human Resources, recognized recent retirees, employees with 20 or more years of service. Sandra Dick, Lisa Ray, Dirk Morgan and Keith Travis recognized the five, 10, 15, 20 and 25-year milestone recipients.

“Tonight’s celebration speaks to the tenure and commitment to both our organization and the patients to whom we provide care. Your good work does not go unnoticed … I challenge you to continue your dedication and service to our hospital,” said Penner to the assembled employees at the banquet.
