  • Karsen Roberson: Roberson was nominated for her exceptional performance as a scrub tech and going above and beyond her duties. Roberson has often stayed late in order to assist with surgeries out of concern for patient care. She is dedicated to her work. Roberson has incredible work ethic and humility while always seeking good for those around her. She does her work at a level of excellence and commitment that is to be admired and certainly appreciated.
  • Yvonne Schoubye: Schoubye was nominated for doing an outstanding job with HCMC catering. On a monthly basis, she caters meetings and puts thought into every detail. The food and presentation are always amazing. Schoubye is friendly and professional and is truly an asset to HCMC Food and Nutrition.
  • Sonia Willoughby: Willoughby was nominated for her dedication to her job as the Vaccines for Children coordinator. She takes great strides to ensure the patient list is updated on the Tennessee Immunization Information System. She closely monitors that her practice complies with government regulations regarding vaccines, develops plans to prevent mistakes and educates her staff when there is a program update. Thanks to her dedication to her job responsibility, Paris Pediatrics received a great report from their VFC representative at their site visit.
  • Heather Fields and Bruce Herrin: Fields and Herrin were nominated for going above and beyond for their community. They took the time to present their ambulance to a pre-school in our community. They familiarized the children with the ambulance and the equipment in hopes of eliminating fear if they were to ever have to be in an ambulance. Fields and Herring are truly caring and professional.
  • Melissa Carpenter: Carpenter was nominated for her heart that exemplifies patient-centered care for her residents. Carpenter goes above and beyond to serve not only the patients of HCHC but the staff as well. Carpenter is known as a cheerleader, employee encourager, activities assistant when needed, fill in nurse aid, day or night, and never hesitates to take care of personal needs of staff. She started a secret pal program with the HCHC staff that is a huge morale booster. Carpenter recently spent the weekend providing care for a co-worker’s daughter. Carpenter is caring and encouraging to all she comes in contact with.

She is an outstanding example for community health and we are fortunate to have her help us Grow Forward.
