The Henry County Board of Supervisors in January presented the Jack Dalton Community Service Award, its highest honor, to the health care workers on the front line of the COVID-19 pandemic. County officials said that more than 5,000 in Henry County and Martinsville work in direct contact with their patients. After the public presentation to health care leaders, supervisors and county staff joined representatives of Sovah-Martinsville to visit many of the area's health care facilities to say thank you. "Health care workers have done so much for our community during the pandemic," Board Chair Jim Adams said in a statement. "Words will never be enough to express our gratitude to them for their bravery and commitment." Tory Shepherd, interim CEO of Sovah-Martinsville: "I am so proud of the tremendous work and unwavering efforts of the dedicated staff at the hospital. I also know that we couldn't do it without the help of our community partners. I am thankful for everyone that works in healthcare, and especially those that took on the many challenges presented by the pandemic."
