East Cooper Medical Center is pleased to recognize Kimberly Ledford as its Employee of the Quarter. The award is based on nominations from coworkers.

“Kimberly runs our front desk and has excellent rapport with all coworkers, and fantastic relationships with our patients,” one nomination reads. “On the rare day she is not working, patients miss her. We have an extremely busy front desk. Kim answers phones, schedules new patients and follow-up visits, checks insurance verification, activates accounts, alerts staff when their patients arrive, and other duties I haven’t listed. If you ask for something one time, you can be assured it is taken care of in a timely and accurate fashion. To say she ‘wears a lot of hats’ is a major understatement. She takes pride in her work and works incredibly hard to keep our outpatient department running smoothly. Kim is our rock.”

“Kimberly is a top-notch colleague who puts her heart into everything she does,” said Patrick Downes, chief executive officer of East Cooper Medical Center. “She joined our team in December 2014 and has been among the best since her first day. It is a great privilege to recognize Kimberly for her dedication to making sure everyone she works with treated with patience and compassion. Congratulations Kimberly.”
