Bob Wortman, owner of J.R. Wortman Co. of Morristown, was a key contributor with his  monetary gift to establish the nephrology center which will be named for his late wife, Sue Ann, who died in 2015.


In 2015, Wortman made a contribution to the Hancock Regional Hospital Foundation for its new cancer center,  that was added to the hospital campus in Greenfield.  The center is now called the Sue Ann Wortman Cancer Center.


Those are just two examples of how the long time Morristown resident and business owner has given back to his communities.


And two examples of why Wortman was recently granted the Sagamore of the Wabash.  Something he didn’t know was coming.
