According to James Murdoch, the former CEO of Fox, “Information is the most valuable commodity in the world today, and this business is about giving people access to information that is relevant to their lives.” As a community healthcare system, we are tasked with providing our patients with every resource available, in and out of hospital walls, in some of the most rural areas. Instead of being overwhelmed by the challenge, our team completes research, establishes partnerships and disperses their knowledge, ensuring optimal patient outcomes and an unparalleled patient experience. This week’s Hugh Chatham Way Highlight focuses on Yadkin Valley Home Health’s Social Worker, Sara Tucker, a team member who has a true commitment to the long term health and wellbeing of our community, creating open dialogue and and new opportunities one patient at a time.
Alisha Shupe, Clinical Services Coordinator and Intake Nurse, says “Sara has been with YVHH for two years. She currently works as a medical social worker. She provides immediate and prompt care to our patients to provide all of the community resources available to that patient. Sara has been quick to take on additional roles within YVHH, positively impacting intake and RCD. She has proven to have a strong work ethic and is a respected team member. Sara is always looking for new ways to improve processes and establish new community resources that benefit our patients. We are lucky to have Sara on our team.”
Vicky Watson, Home Health Office Assistant, agrees and adds that “Sara is very punctual. We have had a couple of really difficult cases recently and we have had to reach out to Sara to help take care of those patients. Sara can talk to patients and their families very easily. She truly cares for them.”
Thank you, Sara, for always putting our patients first and utilizing every resource available to improve their lives. We are very blessed to have you as a part of our team.
