On February 5, 2013, Robert Lundy was transported to Doctors’ Memorial Hospital with multiple gunshot wounds. The 10-year veteran of the Taylor County Sheriff’s department was shot in the abdomen less than five feet away, causing shotgun pellets to hit his liver, colon and lower intestine. Deputy Lundy was brought into our Emergency Room and directly into the operating room, where Dr. Moore began surgery. Dr. Moore was able to get Lundy into stable condition and eventually transferred to Shands Hospital in Gainesville, Florida.
We had the opportunity to sit with Deputy Lundy and discuss his feelings towards Dr. Moore and the Doctors’ Memorial Hospital team. While talking with him, he expressed his gratitude and thankfulness for Dr. Moore and DMH. He was very glad there is a place in the Taylor County community to receive help and care. During our conversation Lundy shared his gratitude by saying, “I was there for them, and Dr. Moore and DMH was there for me. So, I am very grateful for that.”
