Largo, FL- The 2010 Frist Humanitarian Award winners are now glowing in the limelight at Largo Medical Center. Jamie Flores, RN for the Florida Knee & Orthopedic Pavilion as well as for the Florida Spine & Neuro Center is the employee recipient. Regina “Reggie” Harrod is the volunteer recipient.
The Frist Humanitarian Awards are considered the highest honor an employee and volunteer can receive at HCA, the parent company of Largo Medical Center. They are given annually in recognition of the humanitarian spirit and philanthropic work of the late Dr. Thomas F. Frist, SR., a founder of HCA. The Frist Humanitarian Awards were created to recognize one employee, one volunteer and one physician at each HCA-affiliated facility who demonstrate extraordinary concern for the welfare and happiness of patients and their community. Largo Medical Center will announce its physician award recipient at a separate upcoming celebration.
Flores is said to have “a positive, no challenge is to big, attitude.” She says she spends her spare time volunteering for committees within The Alpaca Owners and Breeders Organization and with her church teaching children’s classes and helping out keeping the grounds in good shape.
Harrod has volunteered for Largo Medical Center for 2 years and has put in more than 1,000 hours. It is said he is “always cheerful and always helps with anything and everything.”
“HCA is committed to delivering quality patient care. We are extremely proud to recognize Jamie Flores, RN and Regina Harrod for their efforts on behalf of our patients and our community,” said Richard H. Satcher, Chief Executive Officer at Largo Medical Center. “Their exemplary work and compassion sets a high standard for healthcare professionals. We’re proud to have them as part of our employee and volunteer family. Our patients benefit from the kind of commitment to humanitarian concerns they demonstrate each day.”
“I am very proud to present these awards,” said Richard M. Bracken., HCA Chief Executive Officer. Jamie and Regina are an inspiration to all our employees and volunteers. Their generosity and dedication serve as a living example of HCA’s commitment to the care and improvement of human life.”
