Hospital Recognizes Long Time Employees During Hospital Week


The Scotland County Hospital (SCH) Employee Committee in Memphis recognized employees for their years of service with the organization and awarded service pins, this week during National Hospital Week.  The Hospital is in its 46th year of providing healthcare services in the community and opened its doors on July 20, 1970. 

There are several employees at SCH that have been loyal to the organization for multiple decades and received  service pins this year.  At the top of that list, working three decades for the Hospital is Mitch McClamroch of Memphis.  He earned his 30 year pin while Lana Dial & Tracy Simpson earned their 20 year pins.

Mitch McClamroch joined the Hospital's Maintenance Department in 1986 and worked in that department until March of 2015.  Mitch now works in the Housekeeping Department as the Floor Maintenance Supervisor.  Prior to working at the Hospital, he farmed with his father until his father retired.  Mitch and his wife Nancy live near Memphis and have one daughter, Paige.

Lana Dial, RN, began working for the Hospital in 1972 as a Nurses Aid while in High School.  She later left the Hospital and came back 20 years ago as a Certified Surgical Technologist.  She is also trained as a Certified First Assistant and Certified in Centralized Sterile.  She currently holds the title of Operating Room Supervisor and prior to that position she was the Centralized Sterile Supervisor.  She earned her Nursing Degree from Indian Hills Community College.  Lana plans to step down as the OR Supervisor on May 27th as she will help the new supervisor transition into that role and she plans to retire at the end of the summer.  Lana and her husband, Judge Gary Dial, are both natives of Memphis and have 2 children and 3 grandchildren.

Tracy Simpson, CRT-RCP, is the Cardiopulmonary Supervisor and has held that title for nearly nine years.  She is a Respiratory Therapist and earned her degree from California College.  Prior to her supervisor role, she was a staff therapist for the Hospital.  She joined the staff at Scotland County Hospital in January 1996.  Before moving back to the area, she was an office manager for an oral surgeon in Arlington, TX.  Tracy and her husband Bob are both natives of Memphis and have two daughters.


Next on the list of long time hospital employees are the 15 years of service employees and that list is: Marilyn Day, FNP; Betty Orton, RN; Jeff Davis, DO; and Jodie Jackson, Filing Clerk.

The Employee Committee recognizes employees, annually, with service pins in five year increments.  Other employees receiving pins this year include: 10 year pins - Teresa Kirchner, Kat Probst, Ashley McBee, Randy Tobler, MD &  Kenneth Hoover; and

5 year pins – Olivia Steele, Pattie Robinson, Karla Elam, Tonya Small, Jessica Brewer, Sonya See, Chrissy Green, Lois Quenneville, Kristin Hyde, Michael Brandon, Jessica Whitman, Lacie Snyder, Vicky Yearns, Davye Heine & Ron Keller, DO.

Recently, the Scotland County Hospital Employee Committee awarded a $500 scholarship to a Scotland County R-1 Senior, Chayton Cerroni.  Mr. Cerroni is attending Truman State University in Kirksville this fall and plans to study pre-pharmacy.  He is the son Chris & Kristie Cerroni of Memphis.  Each year the SCH Employee Committee offers the scholarship to one student that applies from either Clark, Knox, Scotland or Schuyler County school districts.  Because hospital employees come from all of these counties, it’s only fitting to offer the scholarship in these four school districts.

And finally, Scotland County Memorial Hospital District, d.b.a. Scotland County Hospital Board of Directors had a member retire from the District 2 position.  Barbara J. Blomme served on the Board of Directors from April 2012-April 2016.  Lori Fulk replaced Ms. Blomme and was sworn in at the Hospital's April Board of Directors meeting.
