Union General Health System CNO, Julia Barnett, Receives “Person of the Year”

April 29, 2021
“Heroes come in many forms. There are those who defend our freedoms, those who educate our children, those who govern our nation, and there are those who take care of the health and well-being of their community. This year, Julia Cook Barnett looked COVID-19 square in the face, and said, “Not on my watch.” Together with the incredible staff at Union General Hospital, Inc., Julia pioneered a path through the uncharted waters of pandemic, and worked tirelessly to ensure that every member of our community had access to the care they needed. Risking personal health and well-being, Julia lead her staff by example, and they certainly followed. Without question, we are grateful to every member of the healthcare profession, and locally, we are grateful to this small but mighty hero, Julia Barnett.”
*This incredible recognition, quote and video were provided by the Blairsville-Union County Chamber of Commerce.*
