“Each employee plays an important role in delivering quality care and creating the best possible experience for our patients,” said David Clay, chief executive officer.  “Stephanie exemplifies the best of who we are as healthcare providers through her dedication to our patients and the hospital. It is a pleasure to recognize Stephanie Hudson and celebrate the hard work of all our employees.”

Hudson has worked at Sandhills Regional Medical Center since November 2003.   She currently serves as a RN, Clinical Systems Analyst. She has also worked as a staff nurse in Acute Care in the past, and has been in her current role for the past two years.

Hudson has received many honors in the past, such as Nurse of the Quarter 2007, Nurse of the Quarter 2009, Nurse of the Year 2012, and her most recent honor as Employee of the Year 2014.

“Stephanie energizes those who come into contact with her due to her overwhelming desire to do provide better healthcare in her community through electronic system adoption.  Additionally she is the first person to volunteer to help even when the tasks are not directly related to her job description.  I will often pass on information pertaining to a particular system or process only to find out that she has already discovered it and has put an action plan into place.   Stephanie is one of a kind and I consider myself lucky for having the opportunity to work with her,” said Brian Bissonnette, Hospital/Market IT director & Facility Information security officer.

Hudson was honored by the recognition.

“I chose to work in healthcare because it was all I knew,” Hudson said. “I started out as a candy striper for this very hospital at age 13 years. I then enrolled into the Health Occupations course in high school. I loved the science of health care, and simply wanted to learn to start IVs and give medications. It wasn’t until my first nursing job in 1998 that I learned to put the whole picture together and learned to want to care for people. I learned to love how the science made a difference in a person’s health and well-being. When I am on the unit and caring directly for a patient, it is most rewarding to see their health improve and improve in a way that they appreciate and are happy with. I have now also found much reward in helping other nurses and staff learn to use technology to improve the care they deliver, and to see patients and their families learn to incorporate new technology into learning about and preventing and treating disease. I love the variety in my job and I am never bored.”
