Linda Cavitt, Director of Laboratory Services retires from Murray-Calloway County Hospital after 37 years of service. After graduating high school at the young age of 16, she wasn’t sure which direction to take so she started at Henderson Community College where her sister was beginning the Lab Tech program and she decided to do the same. After graduating, she worked in Mayfield and then began her career at MCCH as an afternoon Lab Tech. She continued her training, then transitioned to Quality Control, and then worked as the Chemistry Coordinator. In 2001, she became the Laboratory Interim Director and ended up remaining in that role until retirement.
“The people I work with have kept me here,” she said. “The biggest change has been the growth and the addition of the South Tower, it seems like we always have construction taking place.”
Linda is married to her husband Bob of 41 years and they have two daughters, Kemmerli and Katie and three grandchildren. During her retirement, Linda plans to spend time being a full time Nonnie but also can’t wait to travel and ride horses more. She would also like to garden and work in her yard and is looking forward to a planned trip this summer to Mackinac Island in Michigan.
