COOKEVILLE – The Tennessee Hospital Association recognized 26 individuals with Awards of Excellence during its recent annual meeting in Nashville, including three individuals from Cookeville Regional Medical Center.

Cardiologist Stacy Brewington, MD, was awarded the Healthcare Hero Award. He was honored for his actions during a Tennessee Tech football game, which helped save the life of a player from Wofford University, the visiting team.

Receiving meritorious service awards were Robert Bell, Ph.D., past chair, board of trustees at CRMC, and Melahn Finley, director of marketing and public relations. Meritorious service awards recognize leadership and service by individuals in support of their hospitals and health systems. Bell was honored for his efforts in strategic planning and quality initiatives. Finley was recognized for her strong leadership and service to the hospital during the 27-plus years she has been employed.

“CRMC was well represented at this year’s annual hospital association meeting,” said Paul Korth, CRMC CEO. “Each of these three individuals is certainly deserving of recognition for their outstanding efforts, and we are fortunate to have them here at CRMC.”
