Abrazo honors nurses’ contributions during National Nurses Week

Posted

Abrazo Health is honoring its nurses during National Nurses Week, May 6-12, an annual celebration that recognizes the critical role nurses perform in hospitals and the community.

The theme this year, Exceptional People, Essential Care, commemorates just how indispensable Abrazo’s nurses have been during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We are grateful to all of our nurses and humbled by the hard work they do every day,” said Susan Rainey, RN, chief nursing officer for Abrazo Health. “Nursing is one of the most rewarding careers, but also one of the most challenging. This week is about paying tribute to nurses and the daily impact they have on our patients’ lives.”

Nurses have many important roles at Abrazo hospitals – staff nurse, nursing leader, educator, infection preventionist, nurse practitioner and more, and they serve these roles with a passion for the profession and a strong commitment to patient safety.

National Nurses Week is celebrated annually to coincide with the birthday of Florence Nightingale, the founder of modern nursing. Like Florence Nightingale, Abrazo nurses have served with passion and dedication, fighting for their patients against a pandemic that has waxed and waned now for over a year.

Today, as Florence Nightingale did in her time, Abrazo Health’s nurses represent a profession of advocacy and strength and are respected for their professionalism and devotion to their patients, their families and for each other. We have all gained an even greater appreciation for their vital contributions and appreciate their tireless efforts on behalf of our patients and communities.

Our neighbors can be confident in their local hospitals and health care providers. Please do not delay preventive or needed care. Abrazo’s nurses lead by example in their commitment to safe, excellent patient care.

“Abrazo recognizes, acknowledges and trusts the strong commitment, compassion, expertise and care our nurses display in their practice and profession,” said Chief Executive Officer Brian Elisco “Now more than ever, they truly make a difference in the lives of our community.

Abrazo Health includes Abrazo Arizona Heart Hospital, Abrazo Arrowhead Campus, Abrazo Central Campus, Abrazo Mesa Hospital, Abrazo Scottsdale Campus, Abrazo Surprise Hospital and Abrazo West Campus – along with freestanding emergency centers, primary care and specialty physician practices. Abrazo Cave Creek Hospital is scheduled to open in mid-2021. For more information, visit AbrazoHealth.com.
