Bon Secours Southampton Medical Center held a Mardi Gras celebration Oct. 27 at Camp Community College’s Workforce Development Center to welcome new Bon Secours Medical Group primary care providers to the area.
The new providers are Ricky Brockington, nurse practitioner; Christian Markham, physician; Emma Daymond, physician; Melissa Kerrick, nurse practitioner; and Pamela Reiser, physician.
Poster boards were set up at the event to highlight these new PCPs in Franklin and Courtland.
“I think tonight is just to get everyone together and give everyone a chance to meet and talk and see what the hospital has to offer in regard to primary care practice,” said Becky Babb, a family nurse practitioner with Bon Secours Courtland Family Medicine who was also being honored at the event.
People in attendance at the celebration were treated to live music from the Al Strong Band, food, and performances by an aerial dancer and stilt walkers from Imagine Circus.
