At Morristown-Hamblen Healthcare System, we honor our staff who provide extraordinary care with The MAPLE Award, a locally created recognition program that celebrates the compassion and skills our staff bring to patients and families every day. Carolyn Wolfe received the MAPLE award for the month of June.
Carolyn works at Morristown-Hamblen as the Inventory Control Coordinator in our Materials Department and has worked here for 27 years. She is from Morristown and said she started her career when Patricia Dickenson took her under her wing and trained her, as well as taught her the importance that Materials is to a hospital and staff.
She chose to work at MHHS when a friend knew she was in need of a full-time job that offered insurance so she could support her three daughters. She applied and was offered a position shortly after.
Carolyn says her inspiration is to know she has made a difference by getting supplies in for the hospital to take care of the patients as well as make sure the nurses and doctors have everything they need to provide care. Her goal in working at MHHS is to do the best that she can do to make sure she gets what is needed to take care of our patients and our medical staff.
She is motivated by her husband Bobby whom she’s been married to for 42 years, her grandchildren Aiden, Hannah, and Ryssa, and her three daughters Brandy, Casey, and Haley whom she says is her greatest accomplishment.
When asked what the Maple Award means to her, she responded, “I am so honored and never expected to be rewarded for trying to do a good job and being kind to people. I am here to help people I they need it.”
The MAPLE award was truly a surprise for Carolyn and plans to continue working hard to make sure the hospital has all the materials they need.
