Celebrating our Nurses

In May, St. Joseph Hospital celebrated Nurses Week by recognizing the best among us with our annual Nurses Week Awards. Congratulations to all those who were recognized!

Inpatient Best Nursing Team Award
2S Maternal Child Health

The Maternal Child Health team is truly dedicated to our community. Recently, they worked to enhance the free bereavement program available to parents who have lost a child. They have their own community Facebook page, offer video tours of the unit and are active in community outreach. Each year, the team participates in the local March of Dimes event.

“The most important part of being a member of the 2S team is ensuring we’re always supporting each other,” said the nominating employee. “We are active in supporting the hospital by donating funds, contributing time-off to staff in need and organizing meals for families who need a helping hand. We even organized a full Christmas for one of our deserving coworkers.”

Outpatient Best Nursing Team Award
Cardiac Cath Lab

The Cardiac Cath Lab team are true collaborators. Independent Cath Lab nurses provide care for up to 50 different types of patient procedures. Each procedure requires attention to detail, significant knowledge and practical experience. This team collaborates with all other nursing units, providers and other patient providers.

“We are strong patient advocates and always keep each patient at the center of the care we provide,” said the nominating employee.
