Monroe County Hospital Board Member Receives Prestigious Georgia Award

Monroe County Hospital Board Member Receives Prestigious Georgia Award

 

Aretha Neal, long-time member of the Board of Trustees for Monroe County Hospital in Forsyth, was presented with one of the Georgia Hospital Association’s (GHA) highest honors, the Distinguished Service Award. Neal, who received the award at the association’s annual convention Feb. 13 in Atlanta, was recognized for her nearly three decades of contributions to the well-being of her community and the preservation of the local health care delivery system.

Neal served continuously on the board from 1984 until her retirement on Dec. 31, 2012.

As a long-time board member, Neal has mentored the professional growth of many other members and four different hospital administrators. A number of hospital and health personnel also look to her as a role model and advisor.
