 NEW ALBANY, Miss., August 3, 2021 – Baptist Memorial Hospital-Union County recently announced that Diane Taylor has been named Service First Champion for the quarter.  Taylor, an admissions representative, was nominated by a colleague for going above and beyond for a patient.

Service First Champions are individuals who consistently exceed all expectations for the purpose of serving others and are nominated by colleagues, physicians, patients and their family/support persons for outstanding service.

In the nomination, the colleague described how Taylor noticed that a patient may be at risk for abuse and discreetly notified the triage nurse.  The patient’s care team worked diligently to provide the medical care that was needed as well as a safe environment.

The colleague wrote, “Kudos to Diane once again for trusting her instincts.”

“Diane’s concern and empathy for others exemplifies what a Service First Champion should be,” said James Grantham, CEO and Administrator.  “It is outstanding team members like Diane who make a real difference at Baptist Union County and in the lives of our patients and families.”
