Tulip Award Winner Honored

March 6, 2017

Congratulations to Heather Wedde for being named Mercy Hospital Jefferson’s quarterly Tulip Award Winner! 

Heather is a patient care associate on Second Floor East. She was nominated by Teresa Pinkley, RN, from the Fourth Floor.

“I floated down to Two East,” Teresa said in her nomination. “Heather was not my tech, however, she jumped in and helped me with whatever I needed. She volunteered to help me with my patients when she didn’t have to. I thought she was outstanding for helping a nurse she didn’t know and a team she wasn’t assigned to.”

Heather Wedde was named Mercy Hospital Jefferson's quarterly Tulip Award winner.
