The community is invited to attend a celebration Thursday honoring Dr. William Province for his service to Johnson Memorial Hospital and the community.
Province will take a sabbatical from his practice on 100 N. Main St., Franklin, to go on a two-year mission trip to Central America with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, where he will serve as a medical adviser for seven countries.
“We will miss Dr. Province during his morning rounds and his kind hellos in the hospital hallways,” said Jane Blessing, executive director of the hospital’s foundation. “But we also share his excitement as he gives back to others.”
The celebration will be 4 to 6 p.m. at Johnson Memorial Hospital, 1159 Building, third floor, Suite 301. There will be a presentation at 4:30 p.m.
