Inspirational author, Shannon Alder, said “When you are joyful, when you say yes to life and have fun and project positivity all around you, you become a sun in the center of every constellation, and people want to be near you.”  This week’s Hugh Chatham Way Highlight focuses on a team member who is willing to help at any time and does so with a contagious, positive attitude. Join me in celebrating 2nd floor team member, Paul Moran, LPN – a shining light to his patients, visitors, and fellow team members.

Kelly Velasco, Clinical Nurse Manager, said “Paul is very deserving of this recognition. His knowledge regarding our total joint replacement program is a true asset to our team, as well as our patients. His positive attitude and sense of humor makes each patient feel more at ease. We are thankful he is a part of our team!”

Keisha Strickland, 2nd floor LPN, continues by saying “I’ve worked with Paul when I was a CNA and now as a nurse. I think anyone you ask will tell you he is one of the best to work with. He’s always willing to help anyone, whether it’s a patient, a CNA or another nurse.”

Thank you, Paul, for being so willing to support those around you. You brighten the days of those you come in contact with and you inspire us all to do the same. We are proud to have you as a part of our team.


Q & A with Paul

How did you come to Hugh Chatham?
I connected to Hugh Chatham during nursing school. We had clinicals three times during school, so I became familiar with the Hugh Chatham team then.

What are your clinical interests?
I love patient care and my dream is to one day work in a NICU.

How do you and your team exhibit STARS?
Teamwork is a huge part of what we do. We also have a board in the breakroom where we can talk about our team goals and show appreciation for each other.

What do you like to do for fun?
I love to spend time on the ballfield with my kids.
