LRGHealthcare recognizes their commitment and dedication to our community. The Innovations in Safety Award is open to the staff of LRGHealthcare to recognize those who provide situational issues and concerns with examples of how to correct them; therefore making our environment and the environment of our patients a safer place to work and visit.
LRGHealthcare would like to announce the latest recipients of the Innovations in Safety Award, Tammy Smart- Lakes Region General Hospital Emergency Department Clinical Nurse and Kendra Peaslee- Franklin Regional Hospital Coordinator of Emergency Services.
