Ashley Regional Medical Center Names 2019 Mercy Award Winner

Mindy Foster recognized for demonstrating compassion and unwavering commitment to helping others

Ashley Regional Medical Center recently announced that Mindy Foster has been recognized as the hospital’s 2019 Mercy Award winner. The Mercy Award recognizes one employee from each of LifePoint Health’s hospitals who profoundly touches the lives of others and best represents the spirit and values on which the company was founded.

The Mercy Award is an annual recognition program established in 2001 to honor the life and contributions of Scott Mercy, LifePoint’s founding chairman and chief executive officer. The award is the highest honor a LifePoint employee can receive.

“At Ashley Regional Medical Center, we share LifePoint’s commitment to Making Communities Healthier, and we recognize this is supported by the good work and service of our employees on and off the job,” said Ben Cluff, CEO of Ashley Regional Medical Center. “We are extremely proud to recognize Mindy for her efforts on behalf of our patients and our community. She goes above and beyond each and every day to ensure that every person she encounters receives the highest level of care and compassion.”

“I believe that quality and safety are very important”, said Mindy Foster, “I want to bring my family here, and I want everybody at Ashley Regional to treat every patient as their own family member." Mindy has served our community as a registered nurse for many years. She now serves as the Director of Quality Resource Management and is dedicated to ensuring that exceptional care is given to every patient.

Each hospital winner, including Mindy, will be considered for LifePoint’s 2019 companywide Mercy Award. The companywide winner will be announced this summer and honored during a ceremony in Nashville, Tenn., in August, to which Mindy and all hospital winners are invited to attend.
