Guthrie presents Donald Guthrie awards

Each year, Guthrie Hospital gives two of their employees the Donald Guthrie Distinguished Provider Award and the Donald Guthrie Distinguished Employee Service Award, presented by Dr. Joseph Scopelliti, Guthrie President and CEO. The 2020 winner of the Donald Guthrie Distinguished Provider Award was Mary Cotton, ACNP-BC. According to Guthrie staff, Cotton was nominated by her parents and co-workers for “going above and beyond the standard of care to provide outstanding service” in her over 40 years at the hospital. They wrote that she has “provided excellent patient-centered care, giving her best to every patient. She consistently receives positive comments from her patients on satisfaction surveys and follows all best practice recommendations for an ideal patient experience.” The 2020 Donald Guthrie Distinguished Employee Service Award went to Leslie Hall, LPN at Guthrie Southport. Staff wrote that the award acknowledges someone who demonstrated “sustained exceptional performance.” They wrote that Hall was nominated by her peers and that she was “praised for her enthusiasm, innovation, and compassion in her work.”
