In the motivational book, The Light In the Heart by Roy Bennett, he quotes, “Attitude is a choice. Happiness is a choice. Optimism is a choice. Kindness is a choice. Giving is a choice. Respect is a choice. Whatever choice you make, makes you. Choose wisely.” At Hugh Chatham, we have a team comprised of talented individuals who make the choice to be positive, compassionate, and kind — each day. This week’s Hugh Chatham Way Highlight focuses on the Team Leader at our Regional Wound Center, Lindsay Cox, who is recognized for her own daily choice to embody our core values of Service, Teamwork, Accountability, Respect, and Safe Care in all that she does. Lindsay is a beacon of light and hope during difficult times, creating an environment of positivity, encouragement, and support for her patients and fellow team members.

Leslie Speer, Certified Medical Assistant, says “Lindsay is a very caring and dedicated nurse. She is cheerful, sweet, and clearly loves her job as a wound care nurse and works tirelessly to ensure each patient has the best care possible. Lindsay is easy to interact with both personally and professionally. It makes my job much more manageable due to her great personality. She is a wonderful person inside and out.”

Cathy Recchio, RN, continues by saying that “Lindsay is hard-working, dependable, and always keeps a positive attitude. I love working with her!”

Thank you, Lindsay, for making our patients feel respected and comfortable and for encouraging your team to do the same. Your approach to quality care extends beyond an appointment – you help change our patients’ lives – one encounter at a time.


Q & A with Lindsay

How did you come to Hugh Chatham?
I had just had my son wanted to work somewhere a little closer to home when I lived in Jonesville. I started at Hugh Chatham Nursing Center, and a few years later, a co-worker thought I would be a good fit at Wound Center. I started as PRN while working at the nursing home and went back to school to become an RN. Once I finished, I started here full time. I am about to celebrate 12 years here at Hugh Chatham, and time flies by!

What are your clinical interests?
I really enjoy being hands-on, and wounds are my thing. I have tried other aspects of nursing, but it doesn’t come anywhere close, especially with the knowledge and experience over the years.

How do you and your team exhibit STARS?
We like to greet patients individually, and we get to know them as a family. We treat our patients and each other with respect. I let patients know that they are more than welcome to call us to get their questions answered if they go home and forget something.

What do you like to do for fun?
I enjoy painting nature and love hanging out with my kids. We always get into something!
