Lake Huron Medical Center (LHMC) is pleased to announce its December 2019 Employee of the Month, Vanessa Pattenaude, and its December 2019 Volunteer of the Month, Chuck Wilcox. LHMC is honored to have a strong team of staff and volunteers working hard to deliver high-quality care to the Blue Water Area.
Vanessa is a Nursing Assistant in the Med Surg department and has been with LHMC since
2015. She was nominated by a patient who commented, “Not only does Vanessa have the best
outgoing, personable, and relatable personality, she is also kind, friendly, high-spirited, and
professional. She has been one of the best nurses I have ever had. She is a true gem, angel and
is truly a great asset to everyone around her.”
Chuck volunteers at the front desk as a courier and has been volunteering at LHMC since 2014.
He was nominated by an employee who commented, “You can often hear Chuck say, “The patient/visitor always comes first.” For Chuck, it’s not just a phrase, it’s the way he does his job as a front desk greeter and courier. He is vigilant in keeping an eye out for anyone in need of assistance, and he is always there to offer a helping hand. The greeter’s desk wouldn’t be
the same without him.”
Lake Huron Medical Center is proud of each of its employees and volunteers and extends a
special thank you and congratulations to all our team members, especially Vanessa and Chuck, as
we celebrate their accomplishments.
