Daniel F. Simmons, senior vice president and chief financial officer of Monongahela Valley Hospital, received the 2015 Edward J. Protin Memorial Award, one of the hospital's most prestigious honors. The award was presented to Mr. Simmons during MVH's 43rd Annual Service Awards event on May 4.

Those eligible for the Protin Award have served the hospital for at least a decade, exhibited significant contributions to the health care system over and above what is required, and demonstrated the qualities of leadership, loyalty, compassion and empathy.

The 2014 Protin Award recipient, Debbie Burkhardt, director of Radiation Oncology, presented the award to Mr. Simmons.

"Dan Simmons works tirelessly throughout the year to raise money for charity although his position is very demanding here at Monongahela Valley Hospital," said Mrs. Burkhardt. "Every July, with the Appalachia Work Camp, he travels with a group of people from Southwestern Pennsylvania to give our youth an opportunity to see how others live not far from home, to help them appreciate all they have in life and give them a chance to work with other youth. But as they work together they are helping others by building houses, doing repair work and putting additions on to existing homes."

"This is a very touching honor," said Mr. Simmons as he graciously accepted the award. "It is so unexpected. This award means so much to me. I feel so privileged to work for Mon Valley Hospital."

The Protin Memorial Award was established in 1981 to perpetuate the memory of the late Edward J. Protin of Charleroi, former president of the hospital's Board of Trustees and a longtime community leader in the mid-Mon Valley.
