The EvergreenHealth Monroe Board of Commissioners recently awarded Damien Fannin with its inaugural Living Our Values Award.

According to a press release from EvergreenHealth Monroe, Fannin was “honored for his dedication to serving patients and community.” Fannin is the facilities manager for EvergreenHealth Monroe. He was nominated by his peers and coworkers.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, the press release stated Fannin has done an exceptional job caring for patients and navigating high-stress situations.

“Damien’s compassion for his colleagues and patients during these extremely difficult times, paired with his overwhelming kindness, has made a profound impact. We are proud to honor him with the Living Our Values Award, as he is a respected leader and sought-after resource throughout the organization and community,” Alice Cabe, board chair, said in the press release.

Fannin took steps to prepare EvergreenHealth’s response to the pandemic, collaborating with leaders within and outside the organization, which the press release stated, “helped better position the hospital to care for COVID-19 patients even before they stepped through the hospital’s doors.”
