Katherine Bunting-Williams, Ph.D., FMH CEO, said, “Among these 24 employees there is a cumulative total of 275 years of service in our facility.  Each of them come to work with a true servant’s heart.  These dedicated employees sacrifice so much to work in healthcare day in and day out for years and years and provide their best for this community, and their dedication does not go unrecognized.  I believe we will see these same individuals to be awarded again in another five years because of the culture we foster here at Fairfield Memorial Hospital. I am so thankful and proud to have such a hard working, dedicated, and skilled staff here at Fairfield Memorial Hospital.”
