Director of Facilities John Mercer and Facilities Supervisor Larry Johnson have been named EXCEL Service Heroes at Great River Medical Center.

Employees are recognized for actions that extend beyond work requirements. Mercer and Johnson helped coordinate an impromptu wedding ceremony on the hospital’s patio when the groom learned he wouldn’t be released from the hospital in time for the planned ceremony.

Johnson has worked at Great River Medical Center since 1977. He lives in Burlington. Mercer, also from Burlington, joined the hospital staff in 1991.
