Lynda Donegan, Marsha Morgan named Heroes in Healthcare
At TMC, we know about the outstanding employees we have. But it is nice when others recognize this excellence as well.
Lynda Donegan, Vice President, Professional Health Services, and Marsha Morgan, former COO TMC Behavioral Health, were named as 2017 Heroes in Healthcare by Ingram’s magazine. Each year the magazine honors those who have shown outstanding service in the health professions.
Lynda was selected in the administrator category. Before arriving at TMC, she rose from the ranks of nurse at hospitals in Hannibal, St. Louis, Kansas City and Springfield, eventually becoming president and CEO of Springfield Community Hospital. At Truman, she is responsible for the overall patient experience and how it is reflected in patient satisfaction surveys. Among an extensive and impressive list of her duties are administration and management of services in cardiology, hospital environment, food and nutrition, laboratories, language access, medical imaging, rehab services, respiratory therapy, trauma, diagnostics, the neurology clinic and oversight of the Center for Sleep Health.
Marsha was selected as a Lifetime Service honoree, a special category set up to recognize those who have given their working careers over to the notion that there is something noble about restoring health to those at risk for losing it. Prior to her retirement from TMC last year, she served as chief operating officer for behavioral health, overseeing clinical services, staff competence, financial viability, customer satisfaction and client safety for hospital and community-based services, and was part of TMC’s leadership team. Marsha was drawn to healthcare as a Girl Scout, working with children who had disabilities. She graduated from MU with a degree in recreation and park administration, with a focus on therapeutic recreation, and later earned a master’s in public administration from UMKC. While in college, she volunteered at the Rusk Rehab Center and worked part-time at Mid Missouri Mental Health Center.
