You may have noticed that healthcare is full of recognition days and events both big and small – from heart month, to women’s health week, to national hand washing day, to patient experience week (which we talked about just last week). It’s our way of keeping your health top of mind. But there’s none as special to me as National Nurses Week (May 6-12).
This week provides a special opportunity to celebrate and recognize the incredible people who dedicate their life’s work to caring for others. If you’ve spent any time at the Boca Grande Health Clinic, I’m sure you will agree that our nursing team is outstanding.
This past year has been especially challenging for our nursing team, who have carried the day throughout the long battle against COVID-19 and through the vaccination process. They work tirelessly, keep everyone’s spirits lifted and truly embody our mission of quality, personalized care.
I hope you will join me in thanking our Clinic nurses – Deb, Laquanda, Natalie, Karen, Silvia and Dana Pellant – for their dedication to keeping our patients and our Island home safe and healthy.
