Aug 23, 2023; HENDERSONVILLE, N.C. – AdventHealth Hendersonville is excited to introduce you to the newest recipient of its Sunshine Award. Sherry Fox is part of the Environmental Services Department at AdventHealth Hendersonville.

Sherry earned the award because of her dedication to going above and beyond to make sure patients are comfortable and their rooms are clean. She extends the healing ministry of Christ with her positive and uplifting interactions with patients and team members.

A recent patient nominated Sherry for the award. She says, “She (Sherry) was so wonderful. Our room was clean, and we enjoyed her positive energy and friendly conversation. As I walked the halls for my exercise, I could hear her bringing the same sunshine and cheer to other patients. I can tell her work is not just a job; she truly cares about others!”
