CGH Medical Center is proud to honor our nurses during National Nurses’ Week, May 6-12, an annual celebration to recognize the steadfast care and dedication these healthcare heroes show in our hospitals, clinics, and in our communities.
“The nurses at CGH have shown tremendous strength and courage throughout the last year,” said Hannah Walls MSN, RN, Assistant Manager, Population Health Management. “From caring for COVID patients… to working together to administer vaccinations to the community… everyone at CGH has come together to fight this pandemic. Thank you, nurses, for showing up each and every day to fight this pandemic with great dedication and perseverance.”
Our nurses have many roles – staff nurse, nursing leader, educator, certified nurses aides, infection preventionist, nurse practitioner and more, and they serve these roles with a passion for the profession and a strong commitment to patient safety.
National Nurses Week is celebrated annually to coincide with the birthday of Florence Nightingale, the founder of modern nursing. Like Florence Nightingale, our nurses have worked tirelessly, fighting for their patients against a pandemic that has gone on for some 15 months. They have stood at the bedside of COVID patients, while caring for friends and family in very difficult situations. Today, as Florence Nightingale did in her time, our nurses represent a profession of support, compassion, expertise, and strength, and they are respected for their devotion.
“We are grateful to all of our nurses and humbled by the work they do every day, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Dr. Paul Steinke, CGH President and CEO. “This year, more than any, it is about paying tribute to them and the daily impact they make in the lives of our patients and their loved ones every day. It is their contributions to the health and well-being of the patients we serve throughout the area that we are truly proud of.”
CGH employs 625 nurses system wide, which include NPs, RNs, LPNs, MAs and CNAs.
CGH is currently taking applications for a variety of positions. For more information, visit www.cghmc.com/jobs.
