IRVING, Texas – Twenty-three Medical City Healthcare nurses have been named to DFW’s “The Great 100 Nurses” list for 2017.
“The Great 100 Nurses” event celebrates nursing excellence. Nurses were nominated by peers, patients or physicians and selected because they are role models, leaders, compassionate caregivers and significant contributors to the nursing profession. Honorees come from all practice areas in nursing, including acute care, sub-acute care, school nursing, nurse leaders, academics and more. More than 700 nominations were received.
“This honor recognizes the special expertise, passion and commitment to the excellent care our nurses consistently provide our patients and communities,” says Carol Gregory, Chief Nursing Executive for Medical City Healthcare. “I’m extremely proud of our honorees and nursing team.”
Nurses from nine Medical City Healthcare hospitals and the North Texas division office are among the honorees to be recognized during the 2017 DFW Great 100 Nurses Celebration on April 17 at the Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center.
