RUMFORD -- Heidi Mallis and Jamie Paul of the Maine Center for Disease Control recently travelled to Rumford Hospital to present CEO David Frum with a framed certificate and a letter from Stephen Sears, MD, MPH, State Epidemiologist.
The honor was bestowed because Rumford Hospital had the third highest percentage rate of influenza vaccinated employees in Maine for the 2011-12 flu season.
Sears letter read, in part, "Health care personnel are the first line of defense in diagnosing, treating and preventing the spread of Influenza. Thank you very much for all you do to protect health care workers, patients and the community from influenza."
