And the “Recognize a Nurse” winners are…

Thank you to all who gave generously to the “Recognize a Nurse” campaign during National Nursing Week.

Staff from across the Richmond Community of Care recognized more than 200 of their nursing colleagues. Descriptors such as outstanding, commitment, dedication, caring, professionalism, enthusiastic, warmth, sincerity, compassion, hard-working, incredible, quality and safety, teamwork and best practice, and safe care were used repeatedly to describe the nominees.

The campaign raised a grand total of $3586 for the Richmond Hospital Foundation. The dollars raised will be put into “The Gift of Health” fund, to support area of greatest need across the CoC.
