Each year Guthrie Medical Group asks staff members and providers to vote on the departments that most exemplify the daily courteous, sensitive, friendly, cheerful and helpful behavior in taking care of our patients as well as working collaboratively with their internal and external customers. These departments show strong positive relationships with everyone with whom they come in contact. This is a very distinguished honor chosen by peers.
