EGRMC honors 118, including Shirley Lipsey for 50 years of service

EGRMC honored Shirley Lipsey in addition to 117 more employees for their years of service to the hospital and community at a dinner at the Nessmith Lane center on the GS campus.

East Georgia Regional Medical Center (EGRMC) honored Shirley Lipsey for her 50 years of service working at the hospital.  When introducing her, Shannon Farlow described Lipsey as someone who has changed so many lives including patients and coworkers.  She makes a difference in every patient she cares for and continues to take a full patient load and does her job well!  Lipsey continues to run circles around the newer nurses and on occasion picks up an extra shift.  She is an inspiration to anyone who meets her.

In addition to Lipsey, EGRMC honored 118 employees for their years of service to the hospital and community with a dinner at the Nessmith-Laner building on the GS campus.

The EGRMC employees recognized had a combined 1,470 years of service to the local hospital spanning over 50 years. The service awards dinner was held at the Nesmith Lane building on the Georgia Southern campus. Each employee with more than 20 years of service was recognized individually.

All of the EGRMC employees honored have been working at the hospital much longer than the current CEO Stephen Pennington, who has been in Statesboro four years, along with most of the leadership. Many of them have worked at the hospital longer than any of the doctors currently serving our community.

Most of the employees worked in the old Bulloch Memorial Hospital before the new hospital was constructed in 2000.

Stephen Pennington, EGRMC CEO opened the program with a welcome and EGRMC Chaplin Joey Fennell provided the invocation.

The presentations of the award were made by:

  • Stephen Pennington, Chief Executive Officer
  • Mike Black, Human Resources Director
  • John White, Chief Financial Officer
  • David Schott, Chief Operating Officer
  • Marie Burdett, Chief Nursing Officer
  • Beth Simmons, Chief Quality Officer
  • Cullen Summers, Asst Chief Executive Officer

Musical entertainment was provided by Miranda Winter and Frank Fortune.
