Sophia Turner Retires After 42 Years of Service

Sophia-Turner-RetiresCongratulations and best wishes to Sophia Turner, Medical Records Analyst, who has retired after 42 years of service at PPMC.

On November 9, 35 of Sophia’s colleagues gathered in the Medical Conference Room to celebrate Sophia’s contributions to PPMC and bid her a fond farewell. In an effort to fulfill Sophia’s request that Michelle Obama attend her party, Sophia’s colleagues ordered in a life-size stand-up of the First Lady for the festivities. The celebration culminated with Sophia leading a soul train down the hall.

Sophia will truly be missed!
