Largo, FL - Largo Medical Center is proud to announce the 2014 Awards of Distinction including our Frist Humanitarian and our Excellence in Nursing Award recipients.

Ruby Hope, RN, Employee, Nancy Dowd, Volunteer and Dr. Paul Steele, Physician are the Frist Humanitarian Award recipients. The Frist Humanitarian Awards were created to recognize one employee, one physician and one volunteer at each HCA-affiliated facility who demonstrate extraordinary concern for the welfare and happiness of patients and their community. These awards are given annually in recognition of the humanitarian spirit and philanthropic work of the late Dr. Thomas F. Frist, Sr., founder of HCA. National recipients will be honored in the spring in a reception in Nashville, TN at HCA headquarters.

The Excellence in Nursing Award is another national recognition award designed to celebrate the extraordinary clinical and compassionate care delivered by our nurses every day. Rosanne Bohrmann, RN in Behavioral Health received an award in the Compassionate Care category and Lenka Sulova-Anderson, RN on 4A received her award in the Professional Mentoring category.

“HCA is committed to delivering quality patient care. We are extremely proud to recognize Ruby, Nancy, Dr. Steele, Rosanne and Lenka for their efforts on behalf of our patients and our community,” said Anthony Degina, CEO, Largo Medical Center. “Their exemplary work and compassion sets a high standard for healthcare professionals.
