FGH gives top employees the red carpet treatment

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - Forrest General Hospital is giving the "red carpet treatment" to its best employees and physicians. A first-ever, Red Carpet Event at the Saenger Theater was an academy-awards-style extravaganza for top-performers at the hospital.

It was a combination of several different award presentations in the past.

A number of service awards, We C.A.R.E. awards and a special physician award were presented.

"We decided to bring them all together for one special night, for all of our employees who just everyday, go above and beyond the call of duty, so to say, to take care of our patients and our visitors and all the families," said Millie Swan, chief marketing and medical staff services officer for Forrest General Hospital.

The event also recognized the hospital's employee of the year, Kathy Jones.
