Employee of the Quarter

Rhynehardt selected as Hattiesburg Clinic’s Employee of the Quarter

Barbara Rhynehardt, Financial Services Revenue Cycle Management Director, has been selected as Hattiesburg Clinic’s Employee of the First Quarter.

Rhynehardt was awarded the honor from a pool of over 150 candidates across various Hattiesburg Clinic departments. She has worked at the clinic for over 11 years.

Heather Scott, a patient account representative for Hattiesburg Clinic Ear, Nose & Throat, described Rhynehardt as a “lifesaver” since she began helping the department with precertifications.

“Barbara is the true definition of a team player,” Scott said. “She is always willing to pick up the slack and help with whatever needs to be done, ensuring it is done in a timely manner. Since Covid, Barbara has helped in the precertification department and has been a lifesaver for us at ENT. Barbara is a true asset to Hattiesburg Clinic, and we are so thankful to have her.”

Director of Health Information Management Tasha Porter mirrored Scott’s praise and commended Rhynehardt’s hard work and dedication to getting the job done.

“She works seven days a week most weeks and constantly fills in for someone,” Porter said. “Barbara is a reliable motivator and supporter for her staff and me. She is quiet but fierce with her knowledge and workload.”

Thank you, Barbara, for your hard work and dedication to the clinic’s success. We appreciate you!

The Employee of the Quarter is selected from nominations by an employee’s peers, managers and patients and then is chosen by a committee of people from all clinic levels.

As Employee of the Quarter, Rhynehardt receives a $100 bonus, a reserved parking spot for one quarter, one vacation day and an invitation to the clinic’s Employee Awards Banquet next year.
