Floyd Memorial Foundation Recognizes Guardian Angels

January 22, 2009

Floyd Memorial’s Foundation recently recognized the first hospital associates and physicians to be honored as Guardian Angels, a recognition program that allows grateful patients, their family members and friends an opportunity to honor a special associate, physician or volunteer who made a difference during their visit or stay at the hospital.

Those recently recognized include: Joseph Bruckman, M.D., Medical Staff Services, William Croft, M.D., family practice physician, Hanna Deuser, R.N., PCU, Billie Eblesisor, Laboratory, Gary Fessel, Outpatient Surgery, Tom Gotreaux, R.N., CVCU, Daniel Guzman, R.N., Emergency Center, CM Hocker, Jr., M.D., family practice physician, Penny Kimble-Griffin, PCU, Erin Lowe, PCU, Debi Minnich, Organizational/Community Development, Erica Ricketts, Laboratory, Chandra Smith, R.N., Women’s Center and Jay Smith, R.N., CVCU.

To participate in the program, donors can make a gift of at least $25 to the Foundation to have an associate, physician or volunteer named a Guardian Angel. In turn, the Guardian Angel will receive a card from the Foundation recognizing the donation in his or her honor, a Guardian Angel pin and recognition on the

hospital’s Web site and Intranet. In addition, an annual reception will be held in recognition of all the Guardian Angels, and include an invitation to the donor who honored the person through their donation. The donor will also receive a picture of the Guardian Angel receiving their pin and a thank you note for supporting the program signed by their Guardian Angel.
