Bolivar Medical Center Names 2020 Mercy Award Winner

June 30, 2020

Bolivar Medical Center recently announced that Benny Williams has been recognized as the hospital’s 2020 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 2002 to honor the life and contributions of Scott Mercy, LifePoint’s founding chairman and chief executive officer. The award is considered 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 Benny for his efforts on behalf of our patients and our community. He goes above and beyond each and every day to ensure that every person he encounters receives the highest level of care and compassion.”

Williams volunteers for Relay for Life, Bolivar Medical Center’s annual Popsicles for Players, the City of Cleveland Christmas and Mardi Gras parades, and many more hospital and community sponsored events. He was awarded Bolivar Medical Center’s top honor when he was inducted into the ES1 Gold Club in 2018.

Each hospital winner, including Williams, will be considered for LifePoint’s 2020 companywide Mercy Award. The companywide winner will be announced this summer and honored during a ceremony in Nashville, Tenn., to which Williams and all hospital winners are invited to attend.
