We are delighted to share a recipient of the State of Franklin Healthcare 2023 - 3rd Quarter Team Member Excellence Awards. We are proud of Lori and her contribution to SOFHA.

Lori Birchfield has been with SOFHA since January 2001, and will celebrate her 23rd anniversary next year. Lori has received four nominations for demonstrating SOFHA’s Core Values including Teamwork, Compassion, Extra Effort and Excellence.
Lori’s Team Member of Excellence’s Nominations:

1. Lori is a blessing to so many people in this organization. She is always willing to help in any area, regardless of the need. She is a priceless asset to both the Highlands Family Medicine and Primary Care of Elizabethton team members and providers. Over the last few months Lori has jumped in to help countless times, specifically volunteering to help in nursing while we have been short staffed. There is no way these clinics could progress the way they are without her.

2. Lori has always stepped in offering her help in any way needed. She works all roles efficiently and always keeps a smile. SOFHA is blessed to have Lori as an outstanding team member. Not many people in the medical field can do all things IT and Nursing.

3. Lori is always quick to help with any questions I may have and if she doesn`t know it, she will find the answer. She`s always so friendly when you talk to her. She is always hard at work but if you need to ask a question or have a concern, she never looks like she`s being bothered. She is always quick to help if needed.
When I first started, she was so friendly and patient while
training me.

4. Lori goes above and beyond daily. She answers messages and
calls no matter what she is doing. If she doesn`t know the answer,
she will find it! She has volunteered as a nurse when we were
shorthanded. Outstanding team member!
