Sandra Lanham Earns Extra Mile Award
Sandra Lanham, data analyst and auditor for the surgical services department at Gordon Hospital, has been awarded the hospital’s prestigious Extra Mile Award.

This special award was created by members of the hospital’s Employee Engagement Committee to recognize employees who go above and beyond the call of duty on a regular basis. It is awarded monthly to a deserving employee selected by the hospital’s directors.

“I have been really blessed to be able to work at Gordon Hospital and everyone here is awesome to work with,” Lanham said. “I don’t know of any other place I’d rather work.”

While she is honored to receive the award, Lanham added that she doesn’t need recognition for doing the job she loves.

“This is why I love my job,” she said. “Just being able to help people is the best part of each day.”

Beth Crew, RN, BSN, director of Gordon Hospital’s Surgical Services, said Lanham is very deserving of the recognition.

“Sandra is absolutely amazing and always goes above what is expected,” Crew said. “When she takes on a project, she puts her whole heart and soul into it. She treats everyone with respect and kindness, and is always looking for ways to help those less fortunate.”

Lanham has been employed at Gordon Hospital for 18 years. She and her husband, Joe, reside in Rome. She has three sons, Greg, Jody, and Sean; three daughters, Dawn, Brandi, and April; and 12 grandchildren. Church is first and foremost in her life, but in her spare time, she enjoys riding motorcycles and doing things with her family and friends – and especially her grandkids.
