Logan Memorial Hospital, which is part of LifePoint Health, recently announced that Jenny Rogers has been recognized as the hospital’s 2016 Mercy Award winner. Rogers is one of roughly 70 other individuals across LifePoint Health, a leading healthcare company that employs more than 46,000 individuals, to receive this award.
The annual Mercy Award program was established in 2002 to honor the life of Scott Mercy, LifePoint’s founding chairman and chief executive officer (CEO). It recognizes one employee from each of LifePoint’s 72 healthcare facilities, and the Health Support Center based in Brentwood, Tenn., who profoundly touches the lives of others and best represents the spirit and values on which the company was founded. The Mercy Award is considered the highest honor a LifePoint employee can receive.
“At Logan Memorial Hospital, we share LifePoint’s commitment to making communities healthier, and we realize that the hard work and dedication of our employees is critical to our success,” said Jim Bills, CEO of Logan Memorial Hospital. “Every day, Jenny goes above and beyond to demonstrate a level of care and compassion that we want every person who enters our facilities to experience. We are extremely proud to recognize Jenny Rogers for her efforts on behalf of our patients and our community.”
Jenny has been employed at Logan Memorial Hospital for eight years and serves as a Radiology Technologist in the Imaging Department. She embodies the spirit of a Mercy Award winner. In the words of a nominee, “Jenny is most deserving of the Mercy Award. She continuously exudes a spirit of compassion, commitment, and dedication. Besides being a dedicated employee to Logan Memorial, she is also dedicated to her family, her church, her community and most important God. I see this played out every day when working alongside her. She treats every patient, visitor, and family member with the utmost respect and unwavering compassion. She never “rushes” a patient, never interrupts a story. She gives each person she speaks with her undivided attention and care.” Jenny is married to Brad Rogers and has a son Luke, age 6.
Each hospital winner, including Jenny Rogers, will be considered for LifePoint’s 2016 company-wide Mercy Award. The company-wide winner will be announced this summer and honored during a special ceremony in Nashville, Tenn., in August, to which Jenny Rogers and all hospital winners are invited to attend.
Logan Memorial Hospital also recognized two outstanding employees as runners-up Shannon Gorrell and Robert Grinter.
