Bolivar Medical Center Names 2019 Mercy Award Winner
April 25, 2019
Bolivar Medical Center recently announced that Misty Moseley 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 Bolivar 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 Rob Marshall, CEO of Bolivar Medical Center. “We are extremely proud to recognize Misty 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.”
Moseley is Bolivar Medical Center’s Director of Rehabilitative Services and a Certified Speech-Language Pathologist. She holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Speech Pathology from Delta State University and a Master of Science degree in Communication Disorders from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette.
Moseley was nominated by her peers for her dedication to the hospital and to the community. She donates her time to participate in events in and outside the hospital and supports the efforts of many fundraisers, initiatives and activities hosted by Bolivar Medical Center or a community organization.
Each year, Moseley and a team of representatives from the hospital serves the community by providing popsicles to local high school athletes during practices in the summer heat. The goal is to promote heat safety and the importance of hydration. Moseley has coordinated this effort over the years, and this past August, approximately 800 popsicles were handed to players at Bayou Academy and Cleveland Central High School.
Each hospital winner, including Moseley, 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 Moseley and all hospital winners are invited to attend.
Moseley is a native of Cleveland, Miss., and a graduate of Cleveland High School. She is married to Jared Moseley (Cives Steel Corp.) and has two children, Tristan (Delta State University) and Della (Bayou Academy). Moseley is the daughter of Wallace and Betty Boyd and attends the First Baptist Church in Cleveland.
Moseley is a member of the Cleveland Exchange Club, a Life Member of the Delta State University Alumni Association, Delta State Tri Delta Alumni, MS Blood Services Donor, member of the 2010 Class of Leadership Bolivar County, member of the American Speech Language and Hearing Association, and serves as a volunteer for local organizations including Relay For Life, United Way and the Special Olympics MS Delta.
