KNOXVILLE – Congratulations to April Ramsey, Environmental Services, for being selected the KHC Hero of the Month at Knoxville Hospital & Clinics.

“While working as a resource nurse on Med/Surg., I observed a patient’s bed alarm going off. April, who is in environmental services, went to the patient’s room since she was the closest. To me this is teamwork and people centered. April knew it was a safety issue for the patient and she showed dedication to keeping the patient safe until one of the nurses could get to the room. April is my hero. Always thinking about the patient and working as a team,”  read her nomination.

April will be in the running for KHC Hero of the Year in May 2020.

The other employees nominated in May were Brian Miller, Rosie Reid, Kevin Swartzendruber, Lori Major, and Denise Cervellera.
