Community Hospital Corporation Announces 2015 Dan Wilford Award Winner: Bobby Huskey
Plano, Texas (July 9, 2015) – Community Hospital Corporation (CHC) is proud to announce the winner of the 2015 Dan Wilford Award for Compassion and Community Service. Bobby Huskey is a certified nursing assistant at Carolinas ContinueCARE Hospital at Kings Mountain, located in Kings Mountain, NC. He is recognized as an outstanding individual who demonstrates extraordinary care, compassion and concern for the health and welfare of his community.
The award is named for Dan Wilford who retired in 2002 as president and CEO of Memorial Hermann Healthcare System in Houston and was a founding board member of CHC.
“It is my pleasure to present the Dan Wilford Award to Bobby,” says Michael D. Williams, CHC president and CEO. “Through his service to the community and hospital, he shows remarkable concern for the welfare and happiness of patients and the community as a whole.”
Huskey joined the hospital in 2002. Colleagues who nominated him say he is very devoted to patients, staff and the community. Co-workers recognize the extra attention, time and encouragement he provides to help patients improve, and say that ‘patient-centered care’ comes naturally to him. He is complimented often by both patients and family members for the quality care and special touches he provides – such as picking up a special breakfast for a patient on his way to work. Huskey is also known for fostering a family atmosphere and cheer throughout the hospital, and often rallies staff for a celebration or holiday meal.
CHC will recognize Huskey and present him with a Waterford crystal bowl, $500 gift card, and a framed certificate of appreciation in Kings Mountain on July 15, 2015.
