When Scott Burnette, CEO, VCU Health Community Memorial Hospital, told Mildred Waye, LPN and Care Partner, that she was the team member of the month for February, she couldn’t believe it. Her co-workers were excited for her and as a group said she deserved it.
Mildred was nominated by a co-worker and a patient, high praise indeed. The nomination form from a patient and visiting guest stated, “Mildred did excellent work. She was friendly, courteous and knowledgeable while doing her job. She also worked well with her co-workers.”
Her co-worker said, “Mildred is always a STAR Service Performer. Her patients notice and compliment her on her skill, professionalism and caring. She consistently demonstrates excellence in patient care.”
Mildred’s words of wisdom are, “Work hard, put forth your best effort and stay positive.” Two minutes with Mildred will convince you she lives by those words.
Mildred has been with CMH for 38 years and works in the Acute Care area.
Mildred and husband, Larry, have one son, Dennis, and one grandson, Nikolas. They live in Lunenburg County and Mildred graduated from Brunswick High School.
In her off hours, Mildred enjoys her two dogs, reading and doing puzzles.
