CEO Spotlight

As I make my daily rounds throughout the hospital, I am always inspired by the compassion I see for our patients, our community, and each other. Throughout November and December, our staff has coordinated food, clothing, toy, and blood drives to help others in need.    

I can honestly say that this spirit of giving is not isolated to this time of year. I see unselfish acts every day. Sometimes it is the staff member who clocks out and then sits with a cancer patient in the final hours to hold their hand so they won't feel lonely. Sometimes it is the physician who anonymously donates dinners to patients struggling to make ends meet. Sometimes it is the employee who buys new sneakers for a special needs girl. Sometimes it is a hug for a coworker who just lost a parent.    

There are so many untold stories. I know that this does not even begin to tell the heart of the organization. It is this compassion for all that we do that defines where we've been, where we are, and where we are going in the years ahead. I am so proud of you, my OMH family, for your unconditional love during this holiday season ... and all year long.  

Wishing all of you a peaceful holiday, and a Happy New Year.   

Sincerely,

Penney Burlingame Deal, DHA

President & Chief Executive Officer

Officials from Onslow Memorial Hospital and Onslow County Health Department urge citizens to protect themselves and others from the flu, which has caused at least 20 deaths in North Carolina this flu season.

Vaccination and stopping the spread of germs are the first line of defense, according to health officials.

“Getting a flu shot is one of the best steps you can take to protect you and your family from the flu,” says Angela Lee, director of the Onslow County Health Department.

“Each person, 6 months or older, can receive the vaccine. It is not too late to get one as we move into our traditional peak season. The health department also offers the high dose flu shot for those who are 65 and older," Lee says.
