St. Ritas Nurse Practitioner Tim Mosher wins the Ohio Hospital Associations Health Care Worker of the Year Award

(Lima, June 10, 2015) - Out of 220 member Ohio hospitals and 56 deserving nominees, the Ohio Hospital Association (OHA) has selected St. Rita’s Nurse Practitioner Tim Mosher as the Health Care Worker of the Year. The 2015 Albert E. Dyckes Health Care Worker of the Year Award is presented to one Ohio caregiver who is a great leader, reflects the mission and values of their organization, gives back to the community and characteristically goes beyond the call of duty. The award was presented to Tim Mosher on Tuesday, June 9 at the OHA Recognition Dinner in Columbus, Ohio.

Trained as an RN, Tim Mosher spent his first career with the Shawnee Township Fire Department and retired as Fire Chief. He later joined St. Rita’s emergency department and now serves as a Nurse Practitioner at St. Rita’s Urgent Care. His calling to serve community does not stop there, however. Tim has traveled a number of times to Haiti, Jamaica, Lebanon, Honduras and Peru providing medical support to those in need. Recently Tim traveled to West Africa to join the fight against Ebola. Tim was at the epicenter of this World Health Crisis as he cared for Dr. Kent Brantly and Nancy Writebol, even helping to administer the experimental ZMapp.

Furthermore, Tim is quite active in his church, both as a preacher and a volunteer. He served as a volunteer on the Allen County Pandemic Flu Planning committee, leading the group in charge of instituting a stand-up medical facility if needed. He was also part of crew who received the Ohio EMS Star of Life Award for successfully performing a field tracheostomy on an 11year-old male choking on a hot dog.

Through and through, Tim’s career as a healthcare worker goes well beyond his job. He lives his calling to help others throughout our community and beyond.
