Our People Make the Difference

Mary Lynne Wright,
Madison Hospital President

When you come to Madison Hospital as a patient or visitor, you know there are many outstanding people here. The hospital recently honored two outstanding employees.

Shelly Friedrich was selected as the 2018 RN of the Year. Friedrich’s award has been a lifetime in the making. She knew she wanted to be a nurse at age 5, after going to see her baby brother in the Neonatal ICU at Montclair Baptist Medical Center in Birmingham.

Friedrich spent the first part of her nursing career at UAB Hospital, the old Woodland Medical Center in Cullman, Decatur General Hospital and Cullman Regional Medical Center. She joined Madison Hospital in October 2015 and splits her time between Labor & Delivery, the nursey and the Medical-Surgical floor.

“I’m in shock,” she said told me after receiving the Nurse of the Year award. “I didn’t know I had made enough of an impression to get an award so special.”

When she isn’t caring for moms and newborns, Friedrich coaches her son’s archery team at Vinemont Middle School. She and her husband, Davey, also raise about 90,000 chickens on their farm in Falkville.

I’m very proud of Environmental Services Aide Temeka Holden who we honored as the hospital’s Employee of the Year. Temeka works in our Emergency Department, a fast paced environment that can be highly stressful. She however has a contagious smile and personality and always goes out of her way to help our patients and visitors. The pride in her works shows every day.

She has a young son who is the light of her life and enjoys spending time with her family. She was overwhelmed by being selected this year.

We have a great team and it’s our privilege to serve you.
