A celebration of dedicated North Texas hospital employees, the Dallas-Fort Worth Hospital Council (DFWHC) Foundation’s 22nd Annual Employee of the Year Luncheon is set for April 25 at the Hurst Conference Center in Hurst, Texas. A reception begins at 11:00 a.m. in the atrium area in front of the ballroom, followed by the luncheon and event from 12:00-2:00 p.m.
The 2018 winners will be announced at the event from a pool of more than 130 nominees. The theme of this year’s luncheon is “Caregivers Matter: A Survivor’s Story,” with Rebekah Gregory, an inspirational survivor of the 2013 Boston Marathon bombings, serving as keynote speaker.
“With the recent devastation of Hurricane Harvey and other public tragedies, there’s an increased need for emergency preparedness and awareness,” said Kristin Jenkins, president of the DFWHC Foundation. “We thought Rebekah Gregory would be the perfect speaker for hospital employees of North Texas. This luncheon is an opportunity for hospitals to acknowledge exceptional healthcare employees. They play such an important role in the success of our hospitals.”
Gregory was a small-town wife and mother whose life was forever changed due to the horrifying events at the Boston Marathon on April 15, 2013. The act of terrorism left her as one of the 17 amputees at the young age of 26 years old. Co-author of the book “Taking My Life Back,” Gregory will discuss that terrifying day and provide an interesting perspective on the care she received from nurses, doctors and numerous bystanders.
