She said she couldn’t believe she won, but Louise Patterson was indeed crowned Ms. Altoona Health and Rehab 2009. It was an exciting event for the residents, staff, and family who joined in the festivities.

The crowning took place May 29, when 10 ladies entered the pageant to compete for the title of Ms. Altoona Health and Rehab. Mrs. Patterson will join other contestants across the state August 3 at the Wynfrey Hotel in Birmingham for the statewide competition for the title of Ms. Alabama Nursing Home 2009.

Mrs. Patterson’s hometown is Altoona. She has a son and two daughters who are excited and very proud for her. A nurses’ aide for many years, she worked at Altoona Nursing Home when it was first built. She retired several years ago as a nurses’ aide at Blount Memorial Hospital.
