On June 23, Willie Mae Guidry, a Department of the Army civilian from Blanchfield Army Community Hospital at Fort Campbell, Kentucky, was recognized as the 2019 Regional Health Command-Atlantic’s Civilian of the Year. 

BACH Commander Army Col. (Dr.) Patrick Birchfield presented Guidry with the Army Civilian Service Medal signed by Army Maj. Gen. (Dr.) Michael Place, Regional Health Command Atlantic commander. 

Guidry serves as a supply technician in the hospital’s property book office helping to manage over $90 million in government property needed to operate the hospital, pharmacies and, outlying clinics. 

“I’m grateful for the recognition I received for my work because I’m very sure that every other nominee for this award was as capable if not more for winning this award,” said Guidry, who began her career in federal service in 1992 and has worked at BACH since 2015. 

“I have faced several challenges on my way here, but each one of them has only strengthened me, to make me the person I am today – a thorough professional who knows exactly what she wants. Someone who sets her eyes on a goal and does not lose sight of it,” she said, also thanking and recognizing her department and family for their support, encouragement, and inspiration. 

Birchfield said Guidry has earned an outstanding reputation throughout BACH, Army Medicine and the Medical Logistics community, and will advance to the U.S. Army’s Medical Command (MEDCOM) Civilian of the Year competition later this year.

“This regional award encompasses Category 1 civilians at Army Medicine facilities across the entire Eastern United States. It makes me incredibly proud that you have chosen to work here,” Birchfield told Guidry. “Miss Guidry is amazing and is the face of the phenomenal medical logistics team that got her here. Thanks to Miss Guidry and the team, there has been a lot of savings of time, savings of money, and increased readiness rates that make not only your department look good but our entire organization.” 

Guidry continues to serve as the subject matter expert on procurement, management, and disposition of medical devices and durable property for BACH. 

While she has worked in Army Medicine facilities her entire career, this year has been unlike any other. She and her team had to rapidly adapt to support the hospital’s medical logistics and procurement requirements in response to the national emergency resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. 

“Ordering [supplies] played a large role in our COVID-19 mission. I’ve ordered more supplies than I have ever ordered in my supply career,” explained Guidry, who continues to focus on keeping the hospital a ready military treatment facility, procuring needed medical supplies and equipment. 

Guidry noted how proud she is to serve at BACH during the pandemic and noted that it is personal for her. In March, she lost her mother to the COVID-19 disease. 

“I’m always willing to help where help is needed,” said Guidry.
