The 2019 Regional Leader Award was given to Ozment by the American Society for Health Care Engineering (ASHE) of the American Hospital Association (AHA). Ozment was nominated by the Georgia Society for Healthcare Engineers (GASHE).

“Ken Ozment is a man of integrity, professional commitment, a friend and the holder of a proven track record of plant engineering success,” said David Early, Vice President of Support Services and Operations with Floyd. “The Floyd team is very proud of Ken and his accomplishments. The recognition from ASHE as the Regional Leader Award for 2019 is further evidence of his contributions to Floyd and his engineering profession.”
