Transporter Matthew Morton received the Fort Sanders Regional FLAME award in Dec. 2019. Matthew approached his nominator, a fellow Fort Sanders Regional staff member, offering his help with whatever she needed to take care of a patient who needed to be transported to another area of the hospital. He stopped what he was doing to help this fellow employee and patient get to a physician’s office on campus and back to the patient’s room. As his nominator said, “he took time out of his day, put the patient first, and gave excellent care to the patient.” Matthew is truly living the Covenant Health Pledge of Excellence. Congratulations on this well-deserved award, Matthew!
The FLAME Award was created by FSRMC’s Patient Family Partnership Council in 2018 to recognize our non-nurse employees who have gone above and beyond to improve the hospital experience for our patients and their family members. To nominate an extraordinary staff member, click here.
