Cathy Goddard is Blount Memorial Hospital’s November employee of the month.
A three-year employee of the hospital, Goddard works as a PBX telephone operator. Her supervisor said, “In addition to knowing all the codes of the hospital, Cathy is always very pleasant on the phone when answering patient and employee questions. She gives 110 percent at work, and she is one of those employees who never asks for anything, but she gives so much to the hospital, patients and staff.”
Goddard enjoys helping people who call the hospital get to where they need to be. She says one of her most-memorable experiences is a daily occurrence. “Working third shift I don’t see a lot of people. However, I have this one elderly lady who calls me every morning to tell me the day, date and time to see if she is correct. She always ends the call with ‘God bless you, honey, and I love you.’”
Outside the workplace, the Greenback resident enjoys doing crafts with her grandson, recipe hunting, reading magazines and working word puzzles.
