We would like to extend a huge thank you to the Branding Iron for hosting PMC employees & their families for our annual Holiday Party! The food was delicious and fun was had by all.

JoAnne shared a few thoughts about her nomination and award:
"We are so very blessed to have the administration here at Pondera Medical Center- The PMC board and our Administration leaders especially Laura, Bill and Becky, whom I admire greatly. Without, their guidance and belief in us and our vision we could not achieve our goals. Those goals involve what is important to our resident community and their families.
We don’t do anything without the support of our wonderful ECF co-workers and our team throughout the facility and community. I have been blessed with an incredible place to live and work. Basically, I was just doing what I was hired to do: my job!"
Congratulations to the 2018 Winners and to all of PMC on an excellent year!
