DANVILLE — The Danville Town Council presented Hendricks Regional Health President & CEO Kevin Speer a special honor on October 28 at the Hendricks Regional Health Danville Hospital. The ceremony took place just outside the Emergency Room entrance of the facility.
The Council voted back 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 all staff for their continued work on the front lines.
Tom Pado, Danville Town Council President served as Master of Ceremonies while Town Council Vice President Nancy Leavitt read the proclamation. In Danville’s 196-year history, town officials have never bestowed an honorary key to any individual or organization. When asked how special it was to him to receive the “Key to Danville” Speer had this to say.
“Yeah, Danville is the mothership. It’s our home Base and always will be. Brownsburg hospital – we have plans for the future to grow and expand that facility and someday it too will look like this campus but that’s in the future.”
In his acceptance speech Speer went on to recognize many members of the staff and volunteers at Hendricks Regional Health.
