Healthcare Heroes Recognition

Healthcare providers from across the Wiregrass were honored Wednesday for their excellence and professionalism.

10-medical employees from Flowers Hospital, Medical Center Enterprise, Mizell Memorial Hospital, Troy Regional Medical Center and Southeast Alabama Medical Center were treated to lunch and awards.

This was the third year for the ceremony, which is sponsored by the Southeast Alabama regional hospital council.

SARHC Chairman Allen Foster said, "We have so many professionals, so many good folks and we just get accustomed to everybody being good. So it's wonderful to stop and say to somebody specifically, 'Thank you for what you mean to our hospital and our community and our patients."

Wednesday's award winners will now be judged among other healthcare workers in Alabama for state-wide recognition.
