News :: Nancy Farmer retires after 36 years in public health field
· 8:39am July 14th, 2014
Virginia Gay Hospital celebrated Nancy Farmers’ 36 years of healthcare service to our community during her retirement celebration this past Friday.
Mike Riege, Virginia Gay Hospital and Clinics CEO, spoke to a group gathered to reminisce and wish Nancy a wonderful retirement. Mr. Riege mentioned when he first came to VGH, Nancy’s mother Rita Barron had her retirement, so during his tenure he has had the honor to retired both.
Nancy became the Benton County Health Nurse in 1978 and transitioned into Director. She has been employed with Virginia Gay Hospital since 1995 with VGH and is completing her service as the Community Care Coordinator and Benton County Public Health Director.
The VGH team and the Benton County community will miss Nancy’s leadership. When we asked Nancy what she was most looking forward during her retirement, she said, “Time. I’m looking forward to having time to spend with my family.”
Thank you for 36 years of service Nancy Farmer!
