Andalusia Health recently announced that Mike Holloway has been recognized as the hospital’s 2016 Mercy Award winner.

0520-mercy-winner-Michael-HollowayThe annual Mercy Award program was established in 2002 to honor the life of Scott Mercy, LifePoint’s founding chairman and chief executive officer (CEO). It recognizes one employee from each of LifePoint’s 72 healthcare facilities, which includes Andalusia.

“Mike’s commitment to service and quality is demonstrated by the steady growth of imaging service lines, which are fundamental to quality patient care,” Andalusia Health’s CEO John Yanes said.

Holloway spearheaded an initiative to replace imaging equipment so the hospital could offer advanced imaging capabilities in Andalusia. He also served as a key member of a team that tackled improving patient experience results, successfully propelling the hospital from a 7th percentile satisfaction ranking to the 80th percentile. His leadership skills and quirky, irresistible personality shine during his daily routine, which includes visiting employees in his department and making sure they have what they need to grow personally and professionally.

A devoted family man, Holloway grew up in Andalusia and works to improve the overall health and well-being of his community. He helps financially-challenged families deal with tragedies, and serves on the board of directors for South Alabama Regional Airport, working to expand its services to help attract new businesses.

Each hospital winner, including Holloway, will be considered for LifePoint’s 2016 company-wide Mercy Award. The company-wide winner will be announced this summer and honored during a special ceremony in Nashville, Tenn., in August, to which all hospital winners are invited.
