National Nursing Week 2012 provides an opportunity to say thank you to the wonderful nurses at Winchester District Memorial Hospital (WDMH). They truly care about keeping our communities healthy.
“Every day, WDMH nurses contribute to excellence in care and education,” notes Lynn Hall, Vice President Clinical Services, Chief Nursing Officer and Professional Practice Leader.
“They devote themselves to providing each patient with compassionate, skilled and timely care.”
This year, several celebration events are planned including unit coffee breaks and a pub night at the Winchester Curling Club.
WDMH nurses will also be hosting a free Blood Pressure Clinic for the community on May 8th from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. at Andy’s Foodland in Winchester.
WDMH has more than 100 nurses on staff, as well as 40 registered practical nurses.
“Nurses have historically always risen to the ongoing challenges of our chosen career,” adds Lynn Hall.
“Nursing Week is a time for recognition. We are very proud of all of our nurses.”
