Tim Mosher nominee for 2015 Health Care Worker of the Year

(Lima, May 28, 2015) – Tim Mosher’s career has traveled a less predictable path. Trained as an RN, he 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. 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. St. Rita’s is blessed to have such a colleague.

Tim is one of 56 outstanding healthcare professionals nominated for the 2015 Albert E. Dyckes Health Care Worker of the Year Award. The award is presented each year to one Ohio caregiver who personifies a leader, reflects the mission and values of their organization, gives back to the community and routinely goes beyond the call of duty. All nominees will be celebrated at the OHA Recognition Dinner on Tuesday, June 9.
