The public is being asked to help as nominations are being sought for a deserving physician for Memorial Hospital and Health Care Canter’s  annual Little Company of Mary Outstanding Physician Award.

In support and recognition of exceptional and exemplary devotion to continuing Christ’s healing mission, Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center began presenting the LCM Outstanding Physician Award to a deserving physician in 2013.

The award is named after the Sisters of the Little Company of Mary, the sponsors of Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center. Last year’s recipient was Stephen DeWitt, D.O.

The award is based on outstanding job performance reflecting Memorial Hospital’s Mission Statement and the Core Values of Respect for Human Dignity, Compassionate Caring, Stewardship, Quality, and Justice.

To be accepted as a nominee, a physician must be classified as a member of the hospital’s Active Medical Staff for a minimum of 12 months and be in good standing with the Medical Staff.

The nomination process begins with an individual completing and submitting a nomination form to Memorial Hospital’s Medical Staff Coordinator Michele Rose by February 26th.  All nominations will be reviewed by the hospital’s Mission Committee, with the top six nominees then forwarded for review by a selection committee consisting of Medical Staff officers, the Executive Director of Mission Integration, and the Vice President of Patient Services/Chief Nursing Officer of Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center.

The LCM Outstanding Physician Award will be presented by the Medical Staff President during the hospital’s Medical Staff Appreciation Banquet.

For more information or to receive a nomination form, please contact Michele Rose at 812-996-0675 or, or log onto the hospital’s website at
