2023 Winner- Sarah Raney
Sarah Raney is a Patient Access Representative that has been diligently working at Trousdale Medical Center for two and a half years. She has shown commitment to her community and compassion to her fellow co-workers by staying multiple nights at Trousdale Medical Center so that her fellow co-workers did not have to brave the winter storms to come in. She has been a champion in patient safety, with the Director of Nursing, Kelly Anderson, stating “She exudes confidence when patients or families come in anxious, and she always insists on transporting patients herself via wheelchair if she senses a risk for falling.” Sarah Raney is a friendly face to those who need help. She welcomes every patient into the facility with her calming personality. Most notably, Sarah Raney gave her car up to a fellow employee who is a single mom and lost access to her vehicle. This selfless act had a lasting impact on the Trousdale Medical Center community. Sarah Raney did not hesitate to help another in need and did not expect praise for this generous act of kindness. However, her unwavering commitment to helping those around her has touched the lives of many and needs recognition through the Mercy Award.
