St. Mary's Nursing Excellence Award Winners

Nurses play a vital role in meeting the healthcare needs of the public. As part of the celebration of National Nurses Week (May 6-12, 2014), St. Mary’s recently honored our nursing staff and announced the 2014 Nursing Excellence Award winners. Darcy Ellison, Senior Vice President and Chief Nursing Officer, believes it is important to recognize the contributions of nurses who are central to providing quality patient care. “Nurses are responsible for countless numbers of lives saved, hands held, tears dried, fears calmed, problems solved and families comforted. Nursing is a wonderful profession. At St. Mary’s Medical Center, we are extremely proud to be a Magnet ® recognized facility. The American Nurses Credentialing Center recognized St. Mary’s as a Magnet facility in January 2011, which means we are placed within the top 8% of hospitals in the nation for nursing excellence.”
