|Dr. Ronald Arbon|
The annual award recognizes physicians, employees and volunteers who have demonstrated concern for patients and service to the community.
Nominated by fellow physicians and hospital staff, Arbon has been practicing medicine for 54 years, 42 of them in Idaho Falls. With typical humility, he said he was "very surprised” to receive the award.
Laird serves at EIRMC as a volunteer and also represents the hospital as a member of the Idaho State Hospital Association Committee on Volunteers. She is also the treasurer for the EIRMC Volunteer Auxiliary. All three were honored May 10 in a reception at the hospital.
