Tyrone Hospital honored employees with ten or more years of service at an annual recognition event held at the Tyrone Elks Lodge. The event included dinner, and entertainment was provided by DJ Scott Rizzo.
“Our employees are our most valuable resource; they are the face of Tyrone Hospital,” said Walter S. Van Dyke, Chief Executive Officer at Tyrone Hospital. ‘‘Healthcare technology continues to advance rapidly, but hospitals still remain very hands on. We simply could not provide the services we provide without our employees. We are very proud of them and very grateful for their dedication to the hospital and community.”
Leeann Price, Director of Human Resources, said Tyrone Hospital employees have stepped up and remained devoted to the community and hospital through both the good times and the bumpy periods.
“We have had our share of challenges and our employees have been stalwarts throughout,” said Price. “This event is an opportunity to extend some well deserved public recognition.”
