Delivering quality and innovation in patient care

To the Editor,May 6-12 is designated as National Nurses Week. As such, I am writing to recognize the excellent nursing team at ProMedica Bixby and Herrick Hospitals for all they do to support our community 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year.This year’s Nurses Week theme, “Delivering Quality and Innovation in Patient Care,” describes the work that our nurses do very effectively. As the changes in the health care industry continue to accelerate, the nurses at ProMedica Bixby and Herrick Hospitals demonstrate a deep commitment to embracing new ways of doing their work with the common goal of increasing the safety and efficiency of patient care.To say that change is not easy is a given, especially when it happens rapidly, as it does in the nursing profession. However, despite the challenges that may come with the evolving environment that defines our industry, I am confident that the nurses that I have the privilege of working with will stay true to the heart of nursing: a compassionate commitment to improving the health and well-being of the patients in our care. Nurses Week is an opportunity to recognize the contributions and sacrifices that nurses make to help others. I am extremely grateful for all of the nurses who provide exceptional patient care at our hospitals. I encourage others to take a moment this week to thank and acknowledge the nurses they know.Kathryn M. Greenlee, RN, BSN, MBAVice President of Clinical Services/Chief Nursing OfficerProMedica Bixby and Herrick Hospitals
