Deanna Hood is Blount Memorial Hospital’s November employee of the month.
A three-year employee of the hospital, Hood works as an accountant in the hospital’s accounting department.
Her supervisor says, “She is an excellent employee and ensures every task is completed accurately and timely. Deanna relates very positively with all of her peers and is well-respected. She takes a lot of pride in all of her work, and it shows. She always has the best interests of Blount Memorial in mind.”
When asked what she likes best about her job, Hood says, “The variety of work and getting to work with all of the departments.” She also says, “I am proud to be working for Blount Memorial and know that even though I’m not working with patients, we help support the ones that are helping the patients.”
Outside of Blount Memorial, Hood enjoys spending time in the mountains or at the beach; watching her son play football; listening to her daughter play the violin; and going to the shooting range. One thing she says people might not know about her is, “I enjoy metal detecting for civil war relics.”
