letter to the editor
In praise of NHC

May I please have a small space in your newspaper to say how very fortunate we are to have NHC in our community?

I just spent 21 days in the NHC Rehab Center recuperating from bi-lateral knee replacements.†

That staff is unbelievably skilled, patient and caring. After Dr. Nadaud, at Knoxville Orthopedic Clinic had worked his magic, the staff at NHC took over. The RNís, who ministered to me ó Ann, Carol, Sabrina, Beth, Jeff and DeWayne; the therapists, Jodie and Cheryl; the CNAs, Terry, Krista, Richard, Michelle; case worker, Joy; chef, Steve Smith and his staff; the housekeeping crew, all seem to have anticipated my needs before I could even voice them. They worked together like a well-oiled machine.

Whoever is responsible for the model of motivation and reward for the employees there deserves much positive recognition. Rewards are based on how well they care for the patients. It is absolutely†the best model of employee recognition I have ever encountered.

Patients chose to be there from all over East Tennessee, even Florida and until this experience, I did not know there was a place where elderly people, who do not have children living in the area, could go for such tender loving care.†

Thank you NHC and thank you farragutpress for the opportunity to publicly express my gratitude to a most deserving organization.†
