(Calhoun, Ga.) — Judy Fehlenberg has been named Gordon Hospital’s latest SonShine Award recipient. This award was established by Gordon Hospital in 2017 to honor the hard work and dedication of its employees. Quarterly awards provide opportunities for employees, patients, and visitors to recognize and reward employees and teams for exceptional accomplishments and demonstrated behaviors that are aligned to the mission, vision, and values of Gordon Hospital.
The name SonShine was developed by Gordon Hospital employees. The recipients of the SonShine award “shine” for the “Son” of God through their warm and comforting care they provide to patients and their fellow employees.
Fehlenberg, who is an oncology dietitian at the Harris Radiation Therapy Center, received a nomination from the wife of a patient who said the following: “Judy has been a true God-send for my husband, Richard. He has a feeding tube that requires a special nutrition formula, and Judy always makes sure that we have what we need. She has even checked on him on her time off. Judy has truly helped keep my husband alive for 19 months. All she needs is a halo and a set of wings because in my eyes, she is an angel. Judy is a true and caring person, and I thank her for all she has done and will continue to do.”
