John Hopkins Recognized as a Service Hero at Morrilton

Congratulations to John Hopkins, rehab, for being recognized as a Service Hero at Morrilton. He put our values into action by demonstrating REVERENCE and COMPASSION during an extreme weather alert off campus. Read a snip from his nomination below:

One Wednesday when storms rolled through Arkansas, a Code Black was announced for Morrilton. I called John to check on the Rehab staff and make sure they were following the Code Black precautions. John said everyone in the hospital was good but he was out seeing his Home Health patients and promised to be safe. Upon arriving to one of his new patient’s houses the weather became very ominous. Since the woman was alone in her house, John helped her to her safe room where they both stayed until the storm passed over. The patient’s home did not take a direct hit from the storm but she did loose many large trees in her yard.

Thank you to John for providing not only his typical compassionate care but for truly living our mission of serving those who are vulnerable. If John had not been at that patient’s house at that moment, she may have not made it to her safe room. God placed John at the right place at the right time. I am so proud to call John my coworker and so happy he accepted God’s direction to be with that patient in her time of need.
