McDuffie Regional Medical Center is proud to announce Jean Thigpen, Human Resources Manager, as the December Golden Heart Winner.
Ms. Thigpen is a very loyal, dedicated associate and constantly goes out of her way to help others, her supervisors said. Many mornings, she would direct patients and visitors to their needed departments before the switchboard operator comes on duty. She also helps with wheelchairs when they are needed for the patient or visitor.

"Jean is an excellent record keeper, and does an outstanding job of ensuring that all associates have everything required for personnel files," said Belinda Campbell, Director of Human Resources and Legal Compliance. "I can't imagine running the department without her."
Ms. Thigpen is always available to the associates, and goes beyond her job description to help them with their problems and needs, co-workers said. Occasionally, she'll stay overtime in order to meet the needs of other associates. She is unfailingly polite and sweet to all persons no matter how provoked the associates or visitors may become, her supervisors said.
"I have never seen her lose her cool, even under duress," said Eva Newsome, Director of Volunteer Services. "I consider her one of the top loyal, dedicated associates at MRMC, and I wish that I could be more like her. She has my vote as a Golden Heart winner."
