Partners Spirit honoree: Adam Wilhite

PARTNERS Spirit recognizes an employee, volunteer, physician or Cox College nursing student who has made a significant contribution to the benefit of CoxHealth, an individual or the community. PARTNERS behaviors generally demonstrate everyday excellence or exceed the employee's normal job duties.

Adam Wilhite, Environmental Services, Cox South

From the nomination: “One evening while rounding on the ground floor Adam heard a call light go off in the inpatient dialysis unit and proceeded to check on it. When he entered the room, the patient was coding and he started CPR. The code team showed up and took over.

Adam followed them down the hall and into the elevator where the patient coded again. The doctor asked Adam to do compressions so he jumped on the stretcher in the elevator and did compressions to help resuscitate the patient again. Adam showed urgency and responsiveness even though he is not a clinical staff member.”
