Jessica Mattox, BS, RRT, has been named AdventHealth Gordon’s latest SonShine Award recipient.

Mattox, respiratory care manager at AdventHealth Gordon, received a nomination from a coworker who said the following:

“I have worked with Jessica for a number of years, and her work ethic and ability has always been top notch. Two specific instances come to mind making her a great choice for the SonShine Award. First, she always steps up to help me teach PALS and ACLS. During the last class I taught, I had other instructors scheduled to teach certain portions of an all-day class. Due to last minute scheduling changes, those instructors had to cancel. Jessica stepped up and split the topics with me, and we taught the class together. She always presents herself with a cool confidence and level headedness not always found in everyone.

“Another recent situation occurred, and Jessica once again saved the day. A code blue was called, and Jessica jumped into action. She assisted with directing staff and coaching us through the code until the doctor arrived. She maintained a level of calmness during the entire situation. Jessica is such an asset to the team and deserves to be awarded with the SonShine Award.”

The SonShine Award was established by AdventHealth Gordon in 2017 to honor the hard work and dedication of its employees. Quarterly awards provide opportunities for patients, visitors and other team members to recognize and reward team members for exceptional accomplishments and demonstrated behaviors that are aligned to the mission, vision and values of AdventHealth Gordon.

The name SonShine was developed by AdventHealth Gordon team members. The recipients of the SonShine award “shine” for the “Son” of God through their warm and comforting care they provide to patients and their fellow employees.
