Fegan wins Mercy Award at MRMC


Meadowview Regional Medical Center recently announced that Bette Fegan has been recognized as the hospital’s 2018 Mercy Award winner. The Mercy Award recognizes one employee from each of LifePoint Health’s hospitals who profoundly touches the lives of others and best represents the spirit and values on which the company was founded.

The Mercy Award is an annual recognition program established in 2002 to honor the life and contributions of Scott Mercy, LifePoint’s founding chairman and chief executive officer. The award is considered the highest honor a LifePoint employee can receive.

“At Meadowview Regional Medical Center, we share LifePoint’s commitment to making communities healthier, and we recognize this is supported by the good work and service of our employees both on and off the job,” said Joe Koch, CEO of Meadowview Regional Medical Center. “We are extremely proud to recognize Bette Fegan for her efforts on behalf of our patients and our community. She goes above and beyond each and every day to ensure that every person she encounters receives the highest level of care and compassion.”

Bette is an ICU nurse with 40 plus years of providing excellent, compassionate care for our patients. She exemplifies this by ensuring our patients have everything they need as well as serving as a mentor to other care givers. Bette is also active through her church by helping those in need with meals, cleaning and giving of her time in other areas. She is also active in Cancer Fighters United to help provide aide to those less fortunate. She is an exceptional example of the type of care giver and community member others strive to emulate.

Each hospital winner, including Bette, will be considered for LifePoint’s 2018 company-wide Mercy Award. The company-wide winner will be announced this summer and will be honored at a special celebration in Nashville, Tenn., in August, along with all other hospital winners.
