Arnold earns Extra Mile Award


CALHOUN— Jessica Arnold, BS RRT at Gordon Hospital, has been awarded the hospital’s prestigious Extra Mile Award.

This special award was created by members of the hospital’s Employee Engagement Committee to recognize employees who go above and beyond the call of duty on a regular basis. It is awarded monthly to a deserving employee selected by the hospital’s directors.

“Jessica is well respected by the staff and is always willing to learn and accept new job responsibilities and tasks,” said Cindy Davis, BS RRT, CPFT, director of cardiopulmonary services for Gordon Hospital. “She works well with multiple departments to foster teamwork and cooperation.”

Davis added that Arnold also promotes a positive work environment by treating everyone like family.

“She is constantly looking for ways to bring everyone together by encouraging social activities or just giving praise and support on an ongoing basis,” Davis explained. “Jessica embraces the goals of the respiratory department and those of Gordon Hospital. She is very open and willing to listen to the concerns and ideas of her coworkers. She definitely goes the extra mile for her department and Gordon Hospital.”

Arnold, who serves as clinical coordinator for the hospital’s cardiopulmonary department, said she was honored to receive the award.

“It is very flattering to be recognized by the leadership team,” she said. “I enjoy being able to help others as we all work together as a team.”

Arnold received her Bachelor of Science degree from Independence University in respiratory care. She has been employed by Gordon Hospital for 12 years.

She resides in Armuchee with a large, loving, and supportive family. When she’s not going the extra mile at Gordon Hospital, Arnold said she enjoys traveling, walking, scrapbooking, and spending time with her family and friends.
