Frye Regional Medical Center was recently awarded one of two United Way Spirit of North Carolina Campaign Excellence awards at a United Way annual awards meeting.

Frye was the winner for the Hospital/Health System category with 1001-2500 employees. Michael Blackburn, CEO of Frye, attended the N.C. United Way’s Spirit Awards Annual Meeting in Pinehurst, N.C. in February to accept the award on behalf of the Frye employee’s support of the Catawba County United Way.

“Frye Regional Medical Center is extremely honored to be recognized as having the top campaign in the area of Hospital and Health in the state of North Carolina. I am very proud to accept this award on behalf of the employees who gave so
generously to support Catawba County,” said Blackburn.

The Spirit of North Carolina Award for Campaign Excellence is sponsored annually by the United Way of North Carolina. The Spirit awards provide statewide recognition for outstanding commitment and support to communities through local United Way involvement.
