John Keys, audio/visual specialist, was awarded the 2017 Edward J. Protin Memorial Award during Monongahela Valley Hospital's annual Service Recognition event on May 9. The award is one of the Hospital's highest honors. It is given to an employee who has 10 or more years of service to MVH, exhibits significant contributions to the health system over and above what is required and demonstrates qualities of leadership, loyalty, compassion and empathy.

The 2016 Protin Award recipient, Lynda Nester, executive director of MVH's Community Care Network, presented the award to Mr. Keys.

"Often when someone needs something done, John Keys is the 'go to' person," said Ms. Nester. "He is a very talented designer who can take any abstract concept and transform it into a beautiful work of art or effective marketing piece. Everyone in the hospital knows we can pick up the phone at any time and John will respond to our requests and have it them done immediately."

In accepting the award, Mr. Keys said, "Thank you all. This is truly an honor and I am humbled by this recognition. I was taught by my grandfather to give 110 percent and absolutely no less. I try my best every day at Mon Valley Hospital."
