Employees have long history with Fairfield Memorial Hospital

“The year was 1962. My husband and I were at work when we received a phone call that our one-year daughter, Rennie, had been hurt and taken to the emergency room at Fairfield Memorial Hospital. When we arrived we were in for the shock of our lives. Rennie had fallen backwards onto a glass table at her grandparents’ house and cut her throat wide open. Thanks to the swift and diligent work of Drs. William Lyles and Allen Jeter and all the ER staff, our daughter survived with having more than 100 stitches in her neck. If it had not been for Fairfield Memorial Hospital being in our small town, our daughter wouldn’t be here today enjoying her first grandson, Asher.” Sam and Mary Ann Edenfield Mary Ann has worked a patient access representative since 2004 at FMH

“I was born at FMH on 11/11/1964, delivered by Dr. James Turner. I have been an employee of the hospital since 1999 beginning part-time in the radiology transcription office, from there adding medical records transcription and becoming more of a regular part-time employee. I have been continually employed here since 1999 and became full-time around 2010. So, I have been working at the hospital in one capacity or another for 16 years. I now am the administrative assistant to the nursing and quality departments. Since being full-time with the hospital, I really see how much the community needs this facility. We are one big family working here and care for each other and the people of Fairfield County.” Patti Locklair

“My brothers and I ‘started out’ at Fairfield Memorial. Michael was born here in 1955; I followed in 1958; Jerry showed up in 1959 and John made his grand entrance in 1963. We all still live in Winnsboro and a couple of us have even had careers here at Fairfield Memorial. Michael worked as an EMT in the 70’s. My Dad, John Hollis, Sr., was the director of environmental services (maintenance) in the 80’s. He often talked about how many things he “patched up” and how much he loved working here. Dad eventually retired from Fairfield Memorial but always got excited when “the boys” in maintenance called and asked his opinion on something at the hospital. He knew it better than anyone. He came home to Fairfield Memorial to have family, old co-workers and friends from the hospital by his side when he passed away three years ago. I began working as a respiratory therapist at Fairfield in the early 80’s. This was when Fairfield still had a two-bed ER on the back hall of the hospital. I returned (for the second time) as an EMT in the 90’s. EMS was still managed by the hospital at that time and Dr. Burnham and the ER staff was more than happy to help us learn the tricks of the trade. My third stent at Fairfield Memorial began in 2008 as a registered nurse. My son, Christopher, had encouraged me to return to school. Upon graduation, I knew that I was only interested in working at Fairfield Memorial. I’ve spent my entire nursing career here; now working as the emergency room nursing supervisor. God has graciously blessed me with a wonderful family, a terrific job and some of the best friends and co-workers anyone could ask for. Teresa Hollis Eifert, RN

“I was born at FMH on the 11th of May 1968. My mom, Eva Ingle Hinson , was told by the hospital nurses that at that time I was the longest baby ever born at the hospital, measuring 23.5 inches long. My sisters Tammy Hinson and Velvet Hinson were also born at FMH.” Troy Hinson Director of Environmental Services

“I started working at FMH on April 12 in 1982 as a unit secretary. I enjoyed doing that, but I only had that job for about a year when I was then asked if I would like to learn do EKG’s. I said, of course, if the hospital would pay for me to take the course. They agreed and I did that for a while under the director of radiology. Not long after that I was recruited to work in respiratory therapy, at a time they were using a contracted service. Mike Williams was part of that contracted service. He wanted to stay at FMH and came up with a plan for the hospital to start its own respiratory department. I started training as a respiratory assistant. Later I requested the hospital to pay for me to get a degree in respiratory therapy. They did, and I have worked in this department ever since, later becoming director of respiratory. I have always enjoyed working here. I have seen a lot of changes over the years; most have been for the betterment of the hospital. I really enjoy working with patients. My staff tells me that I spoil the clinic patients. I will admit that I do, but I also believe I should. They are the reason we are here. I also like working with my staff. They are a great group of people. By the way, I was also born here in this hospital. Maybe that’s why I love it so much!” Veda Smith Director, Respiratory Care/Orthopedic Clinic

“I began working at Fairfield Memorial Hospital in April 2006, as an RN. But my first visit to the hospital was on May 6, 1962, one of three of my parents’ (David and Marie Melton) four children to be born here. My current office was once the newborn nursery. It gives added meaning to the phrase, ‘What goes around comes around’.” Roxanne Williams, RN
