Wythe County Community Hospital Names 2018 Mercy Award

April 4, 2018

Wythe County Community Hospital recently announced that Sherri Case 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 Wythe County Community Hospital, 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 Joseph Wilkins, CEO of Wythe County Community Hospital “We are extremely proud to recognize Sherri Case 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.”

“Sherri is caring, compassionate, hard-working and civic-minded,” said Betty Elmore, Director of Marketing at Wythe County Community Hospital.  “She has left her mark on our community by making it a better place through her efforts with our Downtown, Inc. project which impacts economic growth in our small town.  Sherri’s relationships with our industry and manufacturing employers proves her loyalty to making communities healthier in our service area.”  

Each hospital winner, including Sherri, 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.
