Effingham Hospital celebrated its 39th anniversary with the naming of this year’s C. Edward Helmey Humanitarian Award winner Saturday morning.

Bertha E. Scott, LPN staff development coordinator for the Effingham Care Center, was named the C. Edward Helmey Humanitarian Award winner. She has served the hospital and its patients for almost 30 years.

Those employees who were selected as finalists were Ken Wimmer, radiology manager, for his concerted effort to elevate Effingham Hospital’s ever-expanding program of radiologic services to new heights, and Patricia Fetzer Parish, surgical services manager, who has improved the hospital’s surgical services department.

The keynote speakers on this occasion were Norma Jean Morgan, CEO of Effingham Hospital, Stephen L. Mobley, chairman of the hospital board of trustees, followed by state Sen. Jack Hill and state Rep. Jon Burns.

The C. Edward Helmey Humanitarian Award is Effingham Hospital’s highest award and is only presented to those who best exemplify the virtues of selfless service and devotion to the hospital and its patients. This award provides Effingham Hospital with an opportunity to choose from co-workers and volunteers who exemplify the finest humanitarian spirit.

Helmey was remembered as a giant in the field of rural health care and a prime mover in the establishment of Effingham Hospital in 1969.  

The ideal Helmey humanitarian is one who has best exemplified the values, vision and mission of Effingham Hospital; who has demonstrated unusual concern for the welfare and happiness of patients and has performed extraordinary acts of kindness; who has a positive effect on other people and wishes to serve; who has made a significant contribution to the improvement of patient care; whose day-to-day performance is dependable, consistent and people oriented; and whose contribution may be overshadowed because of personal humility and modesty.
