An entrance attendant is August’s Taylorville Memorial Hospital Colleague of the Month. Kathleen Mansfield has been recognized for the month of August. Mansfield says that she is one of the first persons you see when you enter the hospital. She hopes to brighten peoples day by giving them a friendly greeting, provide encouraging words, and get them where they need to go.
Becky Morrow, director of hospitality for TMH, nominated Mansfield for recognition, recognizing that Mansfield pays attention to the little things that make a big difference in patients experience and offers water, a blanket, or a meal to send home with patients who have been at the hospital for hours.
