Terrebonne General Medical Center (TGMC) honors Melissa Rice, RN, as the March Employee of the Month. Rice is a Supportive Care Coordinator in the Care Management Department at TGMC.

In an effort to recognize outstanding employees, TGMC names an Employee of the Month. Our Employees of the Month show an outstanding constant commitment to the wellbeing of our patients, staff and extended families, and through their participation in the personal journeys, they have with them. The employee of the month also makes it a priority to live out the TGMC mission of providing exceptional healthcare with compassion.

Rice’s natural characteristics make her the perfect person for the delicate role she is in.  People have to feel comfortable and in control, even when their condition or their loved one's condition does not allow them to actually be.  Rice shows respect for the patient and their decisions and conveys it to others in a similar way.  Rice is knowledgeable in the realm she practices in and is able to address questions or concerns at the time they are brought up, which adds to the confidence others place in her.

Rice is a great example of how TGMC’s icare standards directly affect our patients and their families. She knows her boundaries but speaks up to address patient’s needs.  Rice shows respect to patients, their families, our physicians, and our staff, she makes sure the staff is aware of what is needed for the patient and how we can help, and she maintains professionalism while able to speak to patients and their families at their levels. Our Care Management department and TGMC are extremely lucky to have her as part of the team and we are honored to be able to nominate her as Employee of the Month.

“I am proud and honored to have been chosen as Employee of the Month,” said Rice. “I am thankful for the recognition from my team.”
