Dyer retires from OVM

RIPLEY – After 36 years of service at OVM as a nurse, Cathy Dyer has retired. Her last day of work was Aug. 31.

She began working at OVM in 1979 and has seen a lot of changes throughout the years. When she began, OVM had 100 beds and 98 employees. Now with the added space and additional services they have 235 employees and 172 beds. They have expanded their services to include Outpatient Therapy, Home Health, Assisted Living and shortly Aquatic Therapy.

“I am going to miss everyone at OVM. The staff and patients have been a huge part of my life for so many years. I will, however, enjoy getting to sleep in,” said Dyer. “I feel like I have been blessed to be able to work for the best employer in Brown County. It’s really been a pleasure.”

Angie Moore, Director of Nursing said, “Cathy has been a huge asset to OVM for many years. She will truly be missed. Her teaching abilities are phenomenal. In fact, she trained me when I started here. Her clinical skills and knowledge will be missed. I could always count on Cathy to give the utmost care. I wish nothing but the best for Cathy and hope she enjoys every second of retirement.”

Dyer’s co-workers helped her celebrate and offered her well-wishes at a luncheon they hosted in her honor on Aug. 20.

After 36 years, Cathy Dyer has retired from her position as a nurse at the Ohio Valley Manor.
