WEST POINT, Miss.—Joy Wofford, RN, has been selected as the most recent Employee of the Quarter at North Mississippi Medical Center-West Point.
A graduate of West Point High School, Wofford attained her licensed practical nursing certification and joined the NMMC-West Point staff in 1994.

She is certified in Advanced Cardiac Life Support, Pediatric Advanced Life Support and the Trauma Nurse Core Curriculum.
In her nominations, coworkers praised Wofford for always putting patients’ well-being first and for providing “extras” for patients. “Joy purchases toys, gifts, socks, clothing and other items to have in the ER for children and families when needed,” one nomination states. Another wrote, “Joy has been a part of this community for all of her life and shows compassion through her work.” She was also cited as a hard worker who is always punctual and continually learning.
“What I love most about my job is the people I work with. We are a family,” Wofford said. “We all have a part in making a positive impact or difference in someone’s life. NMMC-West Point has the most amazing and caring staff.”
