St. Joseph’s Selph wins Outstanding Cardiac Rehab Team Member award
HOT SPRINGS, Ark. – Phyllis Selph, RN, a St. Joseph’s Mercy Health Center co-worker for the past 21 years, recently won the 2006 Outstanding Cardiac Rehab Team Member award at the Arkansas Cardiac/Pulmonary Rehabilitation State Convention.
Selph, a mother of three and grandmother of one, is currently working as the Mercy Heart and Vascular Center’s inpatient cardiac rehabilitation nurse, a position she has held for the last 12 years.
“As we all know, Phyllis has excellent cardiac nursing skills and she uses them with utmost compassion and care every day,” said Mercy Heart and Vascular Center Cardiac Rehab Supervisor Norene Chancellor, RN, MS, EP. “We are proud to have her as part of our team and we are excited to be able to recognize her in an official capacity.”
Although Selph admits it was an honor to be recognized, she is quick to give credit to her co-workers at the Mercy Heart and Vascular Center.
“I feel very fortunate to work with a group of nurses who are dedicated to excellence,” she said. “I always tell everybody I have the best job in the hospital. Not only do I get to see people get better, I work with physicians who I respect and who respect my judgment.”
A member of the Sisters of Mercy Health System, St. Joseph’s is a not-for-profit Catholic hospital, two-time recipient of the HealthGrades Distinguished Hospital Award for Clinical Excellence™ and now winner of both the overall Diamond Award and large-company Gold Award at the 2006 Governor’s Family-Friendly Employer Awards ceremony.
