There is joy in knowing that there are hardworking and caring professionals that put their whole hearts into their work and that they are right here in our backyard. I truly believe that my daughters are healthy and strong today because they received the best possible care at Baptist Health Paducah.”

The luncheon, sponsored by Payment Plus, included a fashion show by Nola’s Boutique emceed by Sandra Wilson, Paducah Area Chamber of Commerce president, and Darlene Mazzone, president of Mazzone Communications.
