AdventHealth Celebrates Medical Assistant Who Pulled on EMT Experience to Help Patient

N.C., AdventHealth Celebrates Medical Assistant Who Pulled on EMT Experience

to Help Patient

Sept. 8, 2022; HENDERSONVILLE, N.C. AdventHealth Hendersonville is excited to introduce you to the newest recipient of its Sunshine Award. Martha Leonard, CMA is part of the AdventHealth Medical Group Family Medicine at Brevard team.

Martha earned this award because of her compassionate patient care. She makes the patients feel comfortable with her positive attitude and is quick to ensure their safety throughout their time in our care.

One recent example of this was when Martha was cleaning up a patient during a visit. She noticed some skin lesions that needed to be addressed as well. The same patient, a few months later, passed out while Martha was getting vitals. Martha was quick to assess the situation and ensured the patient's safety the entire time.

“Martha is a natural caregiver,” Emily Hudson, CMA, Practice Supervisor for AdventHealth Medical Group Family Medicine at Brevard shares, “Her EMT experience has helped out immensely here. I feel that she has gone above and beyond, hence this nomination. Thank you.”

AdventHealth Nursing Leadership created the Sunshine Award to recognize ancillary team members who strive for excellence in their profession, consistently deliver exceptional care, uphold the highest standards and collaborate with the AdventHealth nursing teams to enhance the experience of our patients, family members and guests while Extending the Healing Ministry of Christ.

AdventHealth ancillary departments include respiratory services, imaging, laboratory services, nutritional services, engineering, security and bio-med.
