Congratulations and Thank You

The theme of this year’s nursing recognition banquet, Triple Crown Excellence, is an outstanding analogy for the drive, determination, and success that our Premier Health nursing teams have exhibited over the past year. This includes our broadened integration of Advanced Practice Nurses to bring care to patients close to home, Fidelity Health Care’s five-star rating from Home Health Compare, and of course achieving Magnet Designation as a health care system. We cannot celebrate these great accomplishments without celebrating you – our dedicated patient care teams who show authentic compassion each and every day. You always stand ready and willing to serve others, and this passion does not go unnoticed.  

We value this opportunity to celebrate our nursing teams – those who go above and beyond to help us grow stronger through change as we move into the future; those who exemplify the art of nursing, along with clinical science; our greatest partners and mentors; those who lead, educate, mentor, and innovate; those who seem wise beyond their years; and those whose years have made them wise. 

Looking back at your accomplishments over the past year, with a special selection highlighted here, we are incredibly grateful and proud to have you by our side as we carry out our mission to improve the health of the communities we serve. 

The Nursing Recognition Awards highlighted individuals in the following categories:
