Woodland Heights Honors Nurses during National Nurses Week


During National Nurses Week, Woodland Heights honored outstanding employees from each nursing/clinical care department. Those honored were: Todd Burgess,RN (Intensive Care Unit), Madeline Carswell,RN (Emergency Servicees), Lisa Bellomy,LVN (Medica/Telemetry), Todd Morris,RN (Surgical Services), Shane Thigpen,RN (Cardiac Catheterization Lab), Tina Glawson,RT (Respiratory Therapy), Paul McCarty,OTR (Therapy Services), Blake Grider,RN (Orthopedic Unit), Kaitlin Maberry,RN (Women’s Services), Kesley Hetrick,RN (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit), Kelly Lovelly,Admin. Assist. (Wound Center), Diana Harkins,RN (Quality), and Jeannine Rushing,RN (Case Management).

Additionally, there were two very special awards also given out. In years past, Woodland Heights lost two special members of its “family.” Velma Scott and Barbara Weeks were loyal, caring members of the Woodland Heights nursing team for years. Both nurses were in leadership roles at the facility and there were many who looked up to and learned from these ladies. To honor their memory, Woodland Heights began giving an annual award in their names.

The winner of the Velma Scott Award was Kim Burran, a Medical/Telemetry RN, and the winner of the Barbara Weeks Award was Sharon Cox, a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit RN.
