Levittown Resident Honored with "Dee Brown Lifetime of Service Award"
Mary Ann Morgan, of Levittown, has been caring for people in her local community for more than five decades. On Feb. 27, during its "Healing Power of Art," gallery reception, Lower Bucks Hospital recognized the tireless efforts of this beloved nurse by presenting her with its "Dee Brown Lifetime of Service Award." Representative Tina Davis of the 141st Legislative District was also on hand at the event to present Morgan with a citation recognizing her commitment.
Named after long-time Lower Bucks Hospital supporter, the "Dee Brown Lifetime of Service Award" honors individuals who have devoted admirable energy and enthusiasm to the organization's success. To be considered, nominees must have a demonstrated track record of loyalty to the hospital and its civic responsibility. They must also personify Dee Brown's tenacity for ensuring the best outcomes for the hospital's initiatives.
Morgan started her career at Lower Bucks Hospital in 1961 as a staff nurse in the inpatient units. She then moved into emergency room and endoscopy nursing. By 1978, she specialized in the care of patients with wounds, pressure ulcers and ostomies. Morgan was eventually named department head, where she remained until her retirement in 2004.
Since then, she has worked part time as a community outreach nurse for the hospital's home care department, participating in hundreds of community events.
Lower Bucks Hospital's "Healing Power of Art" reception was part of the hospital's second annual HeART Day celebration, held on February 27, in honor of American Heart Month.
