"Health Care from the Heart" was the theme of Monongahela Valley Hospital's 44th Annual Service Awards Event that honored employees, physicians and board members. During the May 10 event, employees were recognized for their many years of dedicated services.

"When I think about the skill, knowledge and expertise that these individuals provide to our Hospital, I know that the people in this region are very fortunate to have them provide their care," said Louis Goodman, senior vice president of Human Relations.

In his remarks, MVH President and CEO Louis J. Panza Jr., reinforced those sentiments by reading excerpts from a letter that he received from a federal government official praising the care the hospital provided to his loved one. Among the comments were,

"In these modern times, when most health care facilities are preoccupied with questions of profitability, it was most refreshing to see a well-oiled health care organization so focused on patient care. The focus was evident from the moment I entered the parking lot and encountered the first hospital employee who shepherded me inside. … Mon Valley residents have the luxury of having one of the finest community hospitals in the country, and one which is staffed by some of the most dedicated health care professionals in the business. … I saw the seamless transition between nursing teams, the competent consultation and exchange of information between medical professionals and staff, and their constant uplifting interaction with my [loved one]. … As someone who is familiar with the hospitals and the care provided by health care facilities in Pittsburgh and Washington, D.C., I think that you and your staff should be proud of your hospital and the services that you provide to the Mon Valley community."

With more than 250 people in attendance, the hospital honored those individuals who served five, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35 and 40 years. Employees, members of the medical staff and board who received the milestone of 25 years of service included:
