LOGAN, W.Va. — Logan Regional Medical Center, which is part of LifePoint Health, recently announced that Justin Turner has been recognized as the hospital’s 2016 Mercy Award winner. Turner 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 Regional Medical Center, 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,” Kevin Zachary, CEO of Logan Regional Medical Center, said. “Every day, Justin 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 Justin Turner for his efforts on behalf of our patients and our community.”
Turner serves as the director of Physician Recruitment, Marketing, & PRI at Logan Regional Medical Center. He is a member of the Logan Kiwanis Club and serves as tennis coach for Logan High School.
Each hospital winner, including Turner, 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 Turner and all hospital winners are invited to attend.
