Employee of the Month
Tabatha Simpson, Social Worker
When a patient’s wife could not work due to her husband being in the hospital, Tabatha helped her navigate the complex financial information regarding her husband’s discharge and service costs. With a medication co-pay looming and the patient’s wife uncertain how to pay, she was informed that the medications were already prepared for pickup. She soon realized Tabatha generously covered the co-pay cost for her. Tabatha’s kind gesture shows how Service is Our Passion, turning a challenging moment into a loving expression of care.
