June 1, 2015

Los Alamos, NM (May 20, 2015) – Los Alamos Medical Center (LAMC) recently announced that Jennifer DiMarino RN, has been recognized as the hospital’s 2015 Mercy Award winner. The Mercy Award recognizes one employee from each of LifePoint Health’s more than 60 hospitals, including LAMC, who profoundly touches the lives of others and best represents the spirit and values on which the company was founded.

The Mercy Award program is an annual recognition that was established in 2002 to honor the life of Scott Mercy, LifePoint’s founding chairman and chief executive officer (CEO).  The Mercy Award is considered the highest honor a LifePoint employee can receive.

“At LAMC, we share LifePoint’s commitment to making communities healthier, and we recognize that this is supported by the good work and service of our employees on and off the job,” said Feliciano Jiron, CEO of LAMC. “We are extremely proud to recognize Jennifer DiMarino for her efforts on behalf of our patients and our community. She goes above and beyond each and every day to ensure that every person she encounters is treated with the highest level of care and compassion.”

Each hospital winner, including DiMarino, will be considered for LifePoint’s 2015 company‐wide Mercy Award. The company‐wide winner will be announced this summer and honored during a ceremony in Nashville, Tenn., in August, to which DiMarino and all hospital winners are invited to attend.
