Gillespie Retires after 11 Years

Hattiesburg Clinic would like to offer gratitude and best wishes to Dorothy “Dot” Gillespie, FNP, who has retired from Hattiesburg Clinic Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation after 11 years of service.

Ms. Gillespie first came to Hattiesburg Clinic in 2012 and spent her entire tenure with the clinic at Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation, where she worked as a nurse practitioner. 

Gillespie was a beloved member of the physical medicine team by both her patients and her coworkers, leaving them with mixed emotions regarding her retirement.

HolliAnna Munna, FNP, a nurse practitioner with Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation, echoed these emotions.

“I am incredibly happy for Ms. Dot as she reaches this wonderful milestone and begins a new life adventure. At the same time, I am sad to lose such a wonderful, kind and knowledgeable coworker,” Munna said. “To be able to walk next door to her office and chat or get advice was such a wonderful part of our days that will be greatly missed. Congratulations and best wishes, Ms. Dot. We love you and miss you already!”

After speaking with Gillespie, it is obvious that she has as much love for her patients and coworkers as they do for her.

“I began a rewarding chapter of my life when I became employed by Hattiesburg Clinic. I will begin the next chapter of my life when I retire from this amazing health care establishment,” Gillespie said. “I feel so fortunate to have had the privilege to work with the awesome professional providers and staff. I am thankful to Hattiesburg Clinic and especially Dr. P. Lynn Bell, for all the opportunities he provided me. I will miss you all!”

Gillespie worked closely with Dr. Bell, who also shared some kind words on her behalf.

“I am so grateful to have Dot in my life, professionally and personally. She has made such a positive impact on me and everyone she encounters. She will be missed!” Bell said.

The impact of Gillespie’s retirement is a testament to the influence she had on her colleagues and the organization as a whole. Please join us in recognizing her for her many years of service at Hattiesburg Clinic and wishing her well in her retirement.

Thank you, Ms. Gillespie!
