Magnolia Regional Health Center (MRHC) physician, Dr. Peyton Preece, was recently named a 2020 American Osteopathic Foundation (AOF) James M. Lally, DO, National Emerging Leader Award recipient.
The National recognition award, given in Dr. Lally’s name, serves to honor an outstanding osteopathic physician, between two to six years, whose leadership inspires others, whose noticeable accomplishments motivate those around them, and whose medical knowledge, combined with patient empathy enrich the lives of those they serve.
“It’s an incredible honor to receive a recognition such as this, which is voted on by such an incredible group of physicians and leaders,” said Preece. “It’s a testament to the incredible team I have around me at both MRHC and the Mississippi Osteopathic Medical Association, and I extremely thankful to them for this opportunity.”
Preece, an internal medicine physician who has been with MRHC for 8 years, currently treats patients in a hospitalist role with the organization and helps to lead the Internal Medical Residency program and Medical Student program in the role of Internal Medicine Associate Program Director & Director of Student Medical Education.
Preece attended medical school at Kentucky College of Osteopathic Medicine in Pikeville, Ky., then moving on to complete both his internship and residency at Magnolia Regional Health Center.
“We’re incredibly proud of Dr. Preece and thankful he is a member of our team,” said Jim Hobson, chief executive officer at MRHC. “Dr. Preece plays key roles in providing quality care for our patients, educating and training future physicians for our region and bringing valuable innovation and leadership in the multitude of projects he helps guide within our organization.”
