Danville Town Council to Honor Hendricks Regional Health With First-Ever Key to the Town

DANVILLE — The community is invited to join the Danville Town Council and Hendricks Regional Health President & CEO Kevin Speer for a special presentation on October 28 from 9:30 to 10 a.m. at Hendricks Regional Health Danville Hospital.

The Council voted in July to present Hendricks with a proclamation and key to the Town in honor of the health system’s response throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, and to recognize the men and women who have and continue to work on the front lines.

“We cannot say enough about Hendricks Regional Health and its professionals for their commitment to the health and well-being of our community,” said Tom Pado, Danville Town Council President. “These dedicated men and women risked their own health and safety to bring healing to those afflicted with COVID-19 without hesitation. We appreciate their partnership here in Danville and so it was an easy decision to honor them and their heroics.”

In Danville’s 196-year history, town officials have never bestowed an honorary key to any individual or organization.

“I could not be more proud and grateful to the Town, and our entire community, for how they have rallied around us,” said Speer. “Since March, our healthcare providers and associates have been living in a high state of readiness and response. This strength, resiliency and relentless dedication in the face of the unknown created an entirely new definition to the word ‘hero.”
