September begins a busy event season for PCH Stokes. September 12th was the Stokes Parade in Danbury. Our float won second place! Thank you to the work by Pam Boyles, Ashley Rogers, Keith Lawson, Faye Mabe, and our Maintenance Department. We also attended the Stokes Stomp on September 12th and 13th in Danbury. The Stokes Fair was in King September 15th through 19th. Thank you to the South Stokes Students who volunteered to take Blood Pressures. We also had many hospital volunteers help. King Chief of Police, Paula May, came by to have her blood pressure checked. The Capella Health fair was held September 19th as well.

Pioneer Community Hospital of Stokes County Director Pam Tillman was named the 2014 Business Leader of the Year.
She thanked her family for their support as she has moved through her career in health care.
"I had a gift from the family that raised me to have wonderful roots and wings," she said. "I have the love and support of my parents and other extended family that gave me confidence that I could do anything I set my mind to.
Tillman said currently her mind is set on providing the best health care possible to the residents of Stokes County.
"We want to be the community hospital where we can take care of the folks who really need us," she said. "We want to be there for the folks who don't have the means to get to Winston. I feel excited that we are trying to identify the needs of the community that are not being met locally and and making sure those are available."
Tillman also thanked the staff at Pioneer for all of their hard work and continuing efforts to improve the care for the community.
