Buhl Regional Health Foundation presents awards in honor of Hospital Week
June 11, 2019 – Dr. Michelle Thompson, a physician, Donnee Huffer, RN, Nurse Manager, SRMC and Sandy Erdice, volunteer at UPMC, were recently honored with the Buhl Regional Health Foundation’s National Hospital Week award.
The recipients each received $3,000 to be donated to a charity of their choice: Dr. Thompson chose Earth Angel Farm in Warren, OH to create a mobile teaching kitchen to be used in Food As Medicine programs, Huffer selected a local non-profit Adrienne’s Army to support those with metastatic breast cancer, and Erdice’s gift will go to UPMC Horizon Community Health Foundation to be used for babies who are born with neonatal abstinence syndrome.
Hospitals in the Sharon regional area were asked to nominate a physician, employee and volunteer for the award. The Buhl Regional Health Foundation received nominations from each hospital and selected these three individuals based on their time and efforts to improve the lives of the people in our community by the care they provide. A total of $9000 was awarded.
