Catskill Regional Medical Center Celebrates National Nurses Week
Starting May 6
Harris, NY – Nurses make a life-saving difference, and Catskill Regional Medical Center is proud to celebrate the contributions of its outstanding nursing team during National Nurses Week, May 6-12, 2020.
The COVID-19 pandemic has spotlighted the extraordinary importance of nurses’ expertise, service and compassion. Nurses at Catskill Regional Medical Center have responded to this unprecedented challenge by being even more devoted to their core mission: providing our patients the exceptional care they expect and trust when they need it most. They do so because nursing is more than a job – it’s a calling. Their reward is patients’ health, comfort and well-being.
“Nurses, today more than ever, touch countless lives and make a vital difference,” said Rolland “Boomer” Bojo, VP Patient Care Services & Chief Nursing Officer – Catskill Regional Medical Center, Administrator, Grover M. Hermann Hospital. “Their excellence and selfless dedication to their patients provide support when it is needed most. We deeply appreciate our nurses and everything they do.”
National Nurses Week, an annual observance, highlights the importance of nursing and is an opportunity to express appreciation for nurses’ exceptional care. The birthday of Florence Nightingale, the founder of modern nursing, is May 12, 1820. Nurses Week always ends on May 12, and this year will mark her 200th birthday.
