Employees and their families from Methodist Medical Center attended the annual employee recognition banquet May 13 at the Peoria Civic Center.

The program highlight was the announcement of the Employees of the Year, the Leader of the Year and the recipient of the Dr. Tom Clark Outstanding Physician Award.  Employees are chosen each month in the areas of support services, patient care and nursing. Those monthly employees are then voted on by their peers for the honor of employee of the year.

The Employee of the Year for Nursing was presented to Paula Mailloux of Metamora. She works in Surgery Pre-Op.

The Leader of the Year award was presented to David Quinn of Metamora. He is Purchasing and Materials Management Director for Methodist.

The Dr. Tom Clark Outstanding Physician Award went to Dr. Keith Knepp of Eureka. Dr. Knepp serves as Chief Medical Information Officer for the Methodist Medical Group.

In addition, over 300 employees received individual recognition for outstanding performance and service to Methodist.
