ALBANY, GA (WALB) –Three dedicated workers at an Albany hospital were honored Thursday afternoon for their hard work and commitment to helping others.

The Frist Humanitarian Award honors those whose lives reflect the humanitarian values on which Palmyra Medical Center and HCA were founded.

Margaret Windham was honored as the winner in the Employee category, Dr. Deborah Trammell was recognized as the winner in the physician category and a very excited and shocked Mary Louise Hollowell was chosen as the winner in the volunteer category.

"I just said its me! I was so surprised! As she went on and then she said graduated from Auburn in 1949, I thought there cant be another person like that but me," said Hollowell.

The three winners are now eligible to win the national Frist Humanitarian award. Those winners will be announced later in the year.
