May Wall of Fame
Patient Testimonial: A mom vocalized to a crowded room how wonderful MARMC ER was in taking care of her young daughter. She needed multiple facial stitches and she said Dr. Hoppes was THE BEST doctor she’s ever seen dealing with a pediatric emergency. She said Dr. Hoppes was patient, kind and explained everything. She was overjoyed that the stitches were coming out soon and the wound was healing well with minimal scar. She was impressed and did not hesitate to tell everyone there.
Tara provides excellent care to her patients. Tara volunteers to assist and team leads process improvement projects. She tackled reorganizing departmental supplies since last inventory. Tara team worked with material management to relabel each supply item location and reorganized Inventory Control Sheets by room. Due to her hard work and dedication, Tara and one other volunteer completed our inventory count in 2 1/2 hours, a huge improvement over 5 to 6 hours in October 2011.
Donna is a hard-working, caring individual. She is always considerate of patient needs and takes pride in doing a good job. She always asks the patients if it’s ok if she cleans their room and makes sure if she moves the bedside table back in place when finished cleaning. She always asks patients if there’s any thing she can get for them before she leaves the room, but not without first checking with patient’s nurse. She always has a smile on her face and never complains. She keeps unit looking good. We are very lucky to have her.

March Wall of Fame
Patient Testimonial: Recently, I was in the market for a new family physician. After 20 years with my previous physician, I was a bit apprehensive about making a change. I asked many people about their physicians, received consistent positive recommendations for Dr. Morris. I was not disappointed when I went for my first appointment. Dr. Morris is a highly competent, caring compassionate physician. She’s very good at putting her patients at ease and explaining treatment options. Her office is run very well. Results of lab tests and x-rays are communicated in a timely fashion. She’s a great asset to the MARMC family.
Patient Testimonial: PJ’s bedside manner and ease and comfort she has in performing her duties were great! She was easy to talk to and quick to get back to me when I had questions. She was very polite and did not act “put out” when talking to my mom or myself. The extra time she took just talking to my mom meant a lot to her and to me. I think PJ is an exceptional role model for your nursing staff. Nurses like PJ, that take pride in their work and enjoy what they do, are the ones that shine!
Information Systems Services
Jericho is an outstanding employee. He always greets you with a smile and provides excellent customer service. He always contacts you with any tickets you input and doesn’t leave you hanging.
