The Fayette County Health Department would like to announce the retirement of Marty Cook, R.N., who served as the director of nursing for her last three-and-half years with the health department.
Director of nursing was only one of her titles that she served in her 29 years at the health department. She also worked for Dr. Heiny for 17 years in his private practice and nine years part-time at nursing homes. Marty has served her community with loving care for 47 years as a nurse and we know that she will be missed by many. Marty is looking forward to her retirement and being able to spend more time with family, doing her favorite hobbies such as gardening, sewing and reading, but she will also miss the community that she served so diligently.
Tonda Bradley will be carrying on the title as director of nursing and she said, “I am looking forward to my new position.”
Nurses are very busy at the health department carrying out a variety of duties such as immunizations, blood pressures, head checks, and family planning. They also provide services in the community, including clinic nursing in the city and county schools, the Fayette County Jail and numerous health education activities.
The health department would like to thank Marty for her dedication to public health and wish her well in retirement.
