As a kid, Eric Bentley dreamed of being a doctor. Today, he is not only living his dream, but he has been recognized for doing it well.
Dr. Bentley received the 2011 Outstanding Healthcare Professional Award from the Marion County Chamber of Commerce.
"It's kind of flattering," he said. "It's not something you expect, people giving you an award for your job."
Defining Bentley's "job" may be more difficult than it sounds, however.
He is a surgeon with offices in Campbellsville and Lebanon, a colonel in the U.S. Army Reserves, and the medical director for Spring View Hospital's new trauma center.
He is also the medical director for Air Evac EMS for the state of Kentucky, and he is board certified by the American Board of Surgery in general surgery and hospice and palliative medicine.
