Fozzard honored by hospital association

The Nebraska Hospital Association (NHA) recognized 76 Nebraska member hospital employees on Oct. 18, by bestowing them with the organization’s prestigious The Caring Kind award.

Butler County Health Care Center is proud to honor Mary Jo Fozzard as a 2019 Caring Kind recipient. Fozzard began her employment at BCHCC in January 2007, as a Central Supply Aide and Scrub Tech. She was nominated by her peers because she always has a smile on her face and positive attitude. In fact, she often points out what has gone right in the day when a problem occurs. Her compassionate care toward coworkers and patients, as well as her dedication to the hospital represents the essence of the Caring Kind award.
