At Morristown-Hamblen Healthcare System (MHHS), 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. Pam Murdock was our August Maple Award Recipient.
Pam works as a HUC on the 4th floor known as “4 South”. She has worked at Morristown-Hamblen for 15 years. She is originally from Morristown and loves serving the community and patients in which she lives.
She chooses to work at MHHS because she loves her teammates and floor. She left for a brief moment but returned because she enjoyed her floor so much.
Pam received her HUC training at Walters State Community College in Morristown and learns more and more every day with on the job experience.
When asked what her goals in working at MHHS were, Pam joked and said “to become CAO”! But in reality, she wants to be a kind light in people’s lives.
When asked what his biggest accomplishment is, Pam says her family and her salvation. She mentioned Jesus being her daily inspiration for what she does.
Receiving the MAPLE award was a surprise for Pam and she is so thankful for this recognition. She felt like this award showed her that she was making a difference in people’s lives by helping her coworkers and working together as a team.
