KNOXVILLE – Congratulations to Jodi Wilson, Surgery Clinic, for being selected the KHC Hero of the Month.

“Jodi volunteers when available to do so, she represents KHC in a positive manner in all that she attends and promotes.  She is always on time and stays late if asked.  She is currently in school full time to acquire her NP and has no intentions on working anywhere other than KHC.  She wants to provide exceptional health care services to our community and strives to do so everyday. Jodi is always willing to help out wherever needed; whether it is in Surgery, Infusion Center, or Specialty Clinics.  She not only runs the Surgery Clinic she also is a nurse for several of the Specialty Clinic doctors when they are here.  When the surgery department is short she jumps right in and does what is needed and even takes call when we need coverage.  Dr. Kermode relies on Jodi for A LOT and she helps keep him in line and on time.  She has taken the initiative to train him on the computer so he now does his own orders which helps us out tremendously,” commented a co-worker.

Other employees nominated in October were Kristina Morgan, Terrie Lorey, Michelle Irwin, and Bob Augustin
