Lake Huron Medical Center (LHMC) is pleased to announce its October 2019 Employee of the Month, Linda Sweppy, and its October 2019 Volunteer of the Month, Mary Hoffman. LHMC is honored to have a strong team of staff and volunteers working hard to deliver high-quality care to the Blue Water Area.

Linda is a Pharmacy Technician in the Retail Pharmacy and has been with LHMC since 2014. She was nominated by a peer who commented, “During our recent “code” event, Linda went above and beyond for a customer. A gentleman arrived at our pharmacy with a high level of frustration. It turned out he was the husband of an employee. His wife had just had a baby and they needed supplies & equipment. We are unable to provide the items needed through our pharmacy, but he had been turned down & rejected already several times. He needed supplies for his wife and couldn’t find anyone to cover it. Linda spent over an hour making phone calls trying to find out where he could go to get the supplies he needed for his wife. This was all occurring during the code event. Knowing we couldn’t personally get the equipment for him, she tried all resources known to try to find some help and directions for him.”

Mary volunteers with the Better Breathers Club and has been volunteering at LHMC since June 2012. Her anonymous nomination reads: “Mary is a very kind and gentle person. She demonstrates her caring heart with the members of the Better Breathers Club. She has been a diligent and faithful volunteer for over 7 years, ever since the Breathers Club began. Mary takes her volunteer position seriously. You can find her at the center keeping equipment clean, bringing water to the members, folding flyers, or giving a helping hand wherever she is needed. The members look forward to seeing Mary and all that she brings to the program. She is truly an inspiration and as asset to Lake Huron Medical Center. Mary, we are thankful for you!”

Lake Huron Medical Center is proud of each of its employees and volunteers; and extends a special thank you and congratulations to all our team members, especially Linda and Mary as we celebrate their accomplishments.
