Ken Hall Honored with 2018 Petersen Award

We are pleased to announce that Ken Hall has received the Kenneth M. Petersen MD Memorial Award for his commitment to our hospital and community. Ken Hall, Director of Support Services, has served for 43 years at Wake Forest Baptist Health – Lexington Medical Center.

The award was created by the Lexington Medical Center (LMC) Medical Staff in 2010 in memory of Dr. Petersen, a longtime general surgeon at LMC, to honor a staff member each year that embodies a strong work ethic and excels in punctuality, dedication to one’s job, respect from peers, years of service and volunteer community services. Annually, LMC Managers are asked to nominate deserving employees for the award. The Medical Executive Committee reviews the nominations and selects the winner.
 
Ken was nominated for the honor by 4 managers, Randy Everhart, Danny Harwood, Jeff Verdell, Derrick Damm and Administrative Assistant, Kathy Rogers for his positive attitude towards work responsibilities, patients, families, physicians and co-workers and his willingness to take initiative and pick up additional responsibilities.
 
Managers note that Ken's positive demeanor by saying that he always has a great sense of humor and positive energy. Also noted was Ken's constant reiteration to his co-workers that they are all working together to uphold the patient and family promise.
 
Ken is dedicated not only to patients but to the community. He serves on the United Way and Hospice of Davidson County Board of Directors.
 
We’re truly fortunate to have employees like Ken who are committed to our hospital and helping others, whether they are our patients or community.
 
Let’s all extend our congratulations and thanks to Ken.
