We were proud to recognize 1,245 combined years of service that evening, including three employees who have been with the hospital for 30 years and one who has served the hospital for 35 years! Those were Martha Hays, Karen Harris, Johnny Marcum and Carol Cotton respectively, whom we would like to extend another huge congratulations and sincere thanks to.

It is amazing and rare to see such low turnover in the workforce today, said Joe Skula, Human Resources Director at MMH. When we have the honor of recognizing 1,245 years of service in one night alongside outstanding leadership by our managers, that's how we know we are in a mission-true organization dedicated to Extending the Healing Ministry of Christ.
