Ambassador of the Month

Mary Holder | February Ambassador

Mary Holder, a certified nursing assistant with Johnston Health Home Care and Hospice, has been named Johnston Health Ambassador of the Month. During a recent presentation, CEO Chuck Elliott said Holder stands out because she embodies every characteristic of an Ambassador. “She is compassionate. She has strong customer service skills. She is dedicated to improving the health of the people across our entire county,” he said. Elliott says Holder has great relationships with patients and their families, and they often request her by name. “She is always willing to accommodate a patient’s needs, and continually evolves her practice to make every patient feel special,” he adds. “She always has a smile on her face.” Holder has worked as a CNA during her entire adult life, and has taken care of thousands of patients, she says. Before coming to work at Johnston Health 26 years ago, she worked with a local nursing home for ten years. “I love being compassionate with patients, and being there for them and their families,” she says. “It’s important to serve the families as well as the patients.” Beth Walker, clinical manager for home care and hospice, says Holder is “super special” to the team. “She has old school charm, with an up-to-date persona and skill set. We feel blessed to work with her,” she says. Holder and her husband, Donnie, live near the intersection of Buffalo Road and Live Oak Church Road near Selma. They have three grown children and seven grandchildren.
