    A patient needed to be transferred to a unit with a higher level of care. After consulting with additional medical staff, Dr. Batson went above and beyond to provide the specialized care needed for the patient. He has such a kind and caring demeanor. Thank you, Dr. Batson, for all you do.

  • Attending of the Month

    Brian Kendall

    Brian Kendall, MD

    UMC Emergency Medicine

    Dr. Kendall is one of the best physicians we have in the EC and is a fan favorite to work with. He has been incredibly helpful with seeing patients and working to discharge them home in a timely manner. He is an advocate for both patients and nurses. We’re so glad he is part of our team.

  • Employee of the Month

    Mary Etheridge

    Mary Etheridge, LBSW

    Social Services

    A young mom was admitted for COVID and was anxious to get home to her 5-month-old baby. The patient had the family’s only car and her husband had run out of necessary items without a way to get more. Mary heard of this and quickly went to the store to pick up the needed items as well as special treats for the other children. Mary is an example to us all of selflessness, generosity, and love, even to a stranger.
