Premier Surgical Associates recently recognized top employees with the 2015 Hope Award. The Award honors outstanding staff who demonstrate the care core values of Premier Surgical Associates. The seven honorees, Krystal Cameron, New Life Center for Bariatric Surgery; Tresa Cowell, PSA Parkwest; Michelle Hope, Premier Vascular Access and Imaging Center; Kay Panzica, Central Billing Office; Amanda Patterson, PSA North; Shannon Walworth, Foothills Weight Loss Specialists; and Sonya Wills, PSA Fort Sanders; were selected from twenty-three nominees company-wide. Employees were nominated by fellow staff members, managers, and physicians. The 2015 nominations include wonderful examples of the integrity and professionalism of our Premier Surgical family.

The award is named in memory of the exceptional patient care exemplified by longtime Premier Surgical RN, and award winner, Anna Michelle Hope. Michelle was one of the earliest staff members of the Premier Vascular Access and Imaging Center. She was known for her clinical knowledge and expertise, and her kind, loving spirit. Her dedication and compassion will always be honored and remembered through the Hope Award. Michelle’s husband Scott, and sons Cam and Cade (Hooch) accepted the honor on her behalf.
