Daisy Award Winner 4th Qtr 2023

We want to Congratulate Mattie Dunn for being our DAISY award winner for 4th quarter 2023! Here is what one of her patients had to say about her: “Mattie volunteered to stay and be my nurse after already working all night. She was an amazing nurse, stayed by my side through the whole process, and explained everything that was going on. She answered every question flawlessly, eased every worry, and helped more than I could have hoped for. We are so thankful that Mattie was our nurse.”

Thank you Mattie for being there for this and every patient you work with. You are an integral part of our Labor and Delivery Department! Please join us in congratulating Mattie Dunn!


Employee of the Month – Joleen Smith – January 2024

We want to congratulate Joleen Smith for being our January Employee of the Month! This is what was written about Joleen and her commitment to her patients and field: “This lady works hard all the time. She knows her patient’s potential and goes by that and does not let them give up on themselves. She also goes above and beyond in care while with her patients. She never says “it’s not my job”, and does what it takes to advocate for her patients to make sure they are getting whatever it is they require so they are able to participate with treatment. She builds the relationship that is necessary with the patient and goes above and beyond by learning what makes them feel welcome. She is going to do whatever she can to help them prepare to return home. To hear her talk to her patients, you would think she has known them all her life. She definitely demonstrates “employee of the month” qualities and deserves to be recognized!”
Thank you, Joleen, for being such a wonderful care giver and co-worker! We love having you as part of the MHM Team!
