Prahl & Horner Are Honored at Hopedale Medical Complex

Focused on patients, residents, staff and community, Hopedale Medical Complex (HMC) Employees strive each day to advance the mission and vision that is rooted in the foundation of the medical complex. Each month, HMC Employee Empowerment hosts an awards ceremony for those employees, who are recognized by their peers, for the outstanding work that they are doing in one of the numerous departments that are a part of the HMC campus.

Two individuals were recognized as a June Employee of the Month. The first was Michael Prahl, a vital member of the HMC IT Team. Nominator, Erin Evans, Radiology Department Manager, shared, “The radiology department calls IT a lot with different tasks that are always involved and require lots of researching and digging. Michael is incredibly helpful and manages to handle all our IT needs!” Michael joined the HMC IT Team in January of 2022.

Our second June Employee of the Month was also awarded our June COO (Character of an Outstanding Organization) Award. Beth Horner, RN, a Hopedale Hospital Nurse for 27 years, has been a consistent and driving force in our hospital nursing team. Nominated by co-worker, Colleen Corr, Beth is known for her willingness to lend a hand and answer any questions she can. Colleen shared, “All the patients love Beth because she’s willing to go the extra mile for patient satisfaction. She always makes sure to say goodbye to her patients and it doesn’t go unnoticed.” During the monthly awards ceremony Emily Whitson, COO, commented, “Nurses like Beth truly embrace the mission and vision that we focus on here at HMC. We are proud of the patient care that her, and so many of our staff members believe in.”
