November is a month to be thankful as we celebrate Thanksgiving. We’re thankful for our Healthy Connections November Shining Star Employees of the Month:


WEST: debbie welch

EAST: misty morris

Each month across the Healthy Connections Community Health Network, exemplary employees are nominated for this award for representing our Three Pillars: Excellence, Compassion, and Community. These pillars are considered heavily when choosing winners.

As winners of this Shining STAR award, Debbie and Misty are winners of a $50 gift card to the HC Hub Company Store.

Debbie works in billing at the Mena clinic. Misty is a nurse  at the Little Rock Midtown clinic.

  • Debbie is very knowledgeable about the billing operations of Healthy Connections. She is always available to answer any and all questions. She notifies billers of any insurance issues with claims for the clinics they work so we can work these claims quickly to receive payments.”
  • “When we were short nurses, Misty stepped up and took lead on the back at the nurses’ station. I have not heard her complain a single time and she will go above and beyond to make sure that Dr. Terry Jefferson is satisfied. Deserving is an understatement for Misty, I would not trade her for anybody.”

Congratulations to both Debbie and Misty.
