Swami Sivananda once said, “Put your heart, mind, and soul into even your smallest acts. This is the secret to success.” This week’s Hugh Chatham Way Highlight team member not only exemplifies this sentiment, but also helps the hearts of so many in her role as Director of Cardiopulmonary. Known by her team and peers as a person of integrity, intelligence, good judgment, an eye for detail, and a “can do” attitude, Wendy Triplett is most deserving of recognition.
Ashley Tilley, Lead Respiratory Technician, stated, “Wendy is probably the most generous, caring, compassionate person I have ever encountered. She is a woman of faith; she lives by her faith day in and day out. She leads by example – that is Wendy in a nutshell.” Ali Wood, Clinical Coordinator, let us know that Wendy’s favorite character is Wonder Woman. Ali continued by saying, “I think the quote from the Wonder Woman series says it all, “Because no matter how small an act of kindness or generosity or simple positivity you put out into the world, it will make a difference.” Wendy is one in a million!! She is a dedicated, loving, hardworking, God-fearing woman! We are all blessed to know her.”
Brittany Anderson, RCP/RRT, continued the high praise by calling Wendy “the definition of a leader. She has the biggest heart ever; she is caring, understanding, and just all around, the best boss ever.” Wendy’s steadfast commitment to our core values of Service, Teamwork, Accountability, Respect, and Safe Care (STARS) has inspired the Cardiopulmonary department to deliver the highest levels of quality, safety, and service. Her team members’ dedication to our patients is both evident and a testament to Wendy’s positive leadership and support.
The heart of cardiopulmonary care here at Hugh Chatham since 1997, Wendy is preparing to enter a new and exciting chapter with her family. We will miss you, Wendy. But know that you leave behind a vibrant legacy of caring, compassion, and excellence that we will honor through our own efforts, each day. We wish you all the very best!
