CRMC’s Coffey Award Nominations Sought

COOKEVILLE Cookeville Regional Medical Center is currently seeking nominations for the 2020 Martin Coffey Cardiovascular Service Award. Recipients of this award may be current or past hospital employees, medical staff, board members, or other individuals in the community who have been active in the support of cardiovascular services at Cookeville Regional Medical Center. The award recipient’s contributions must have had a positive and lasting effect on the scope and delivery of quality cardiovascular care to the patients of CRMC and the Upper Cumberland region.

The award was established five years ago in memory of the late Martin Coffey to recognize his distinguished service and in appreciation for his endeavors to not only establish the heart program at Cookeville Regional but also for his efforts to continually expand the program.  

The award seeks to recognize an individual who best exemplifies the same commitment, loyalty and concern for Cookeville Regional and the patients it serves that Coffey demonstrated during his 13 years of service as the director of the Cardiac Cath Lab at Cookeville Regional Medical Center. 

Last year the award was presented to Amy Rich, RN, for her commitment and dedication to the heart program at Cookeville Regional. Previous award recipients include the late Tom Little of Mended Hearts Chapter 127, cardiologist Alex Case, M.D., cardiac, vascular and thoracic surgeon Lewis Wilson, M.D. and cardiologist Stacy Brewington, MD.

Nominations must be submitted by Friday, Nov. 22, and should include a detailed written summary of the individual’s contributions to CRMC and cardiovascular health care in the community.  Nominations may be emailed to Melahn Finley at  or submitted to:
