Good Samaritan Award Winners

In every place and time, there are those exceptional people who selflessly give of themselves to comfort and aid others in need. The name “Good Samaritan” originated in the Christian Bible; but the concept transcends religion and culture. Without thought of reward or cost to themselves, a “Good Samaritan” profoundly changes someone’s life. At Med Center Health, this is an employee, volunteer, board member or community member who goes above and beyond in an extraordinary act of kindness, bravery or service to others.

Good Samaritan – Carrie Shephard

One thing that every human being has in common is that we are born and then one day we will die. However, the circumstances between birth and death vary so greatly for each individual. The choices we make, people we encounter, and experiences we have all depend on fate. With these differences acknowledged, I believe one thing we can all hope for is to encounter and make relationships with someone that will be there for us in our final moments.

Congratulations to Meredith Cherry, a night shift RN on the CCU, for being honored with the Good Samaritan Award. Please see the nomination below to see why the Employee Recognition Committee selected Meredith as an award recipient.

In April 2023, CCU found itself with one extra patient. This extra patient was accompanying his owner while traveling and his owner ended up in CCU for a period of time. While Marcus didn’t seem to mind hanging out in CCU, his owner was extremely worried about what may happen to Marcus and how he was going to take care of Marcus during his admission and subsequent rehab stay.
