Nurses are a valuable and instrumental part of St. Elizabeth’s Hospital. Nursing colleagues make up about 45% of the colleagues at St. Elizabeth’s Hospital.

This is an opportunity to celebrate their dedication. Nursing isn’t just a career – it is a calling, and it is one our nurses are truly passionate about,” she explained. A full week of celebratory activities are planned for hospital staff including prize giveaways, clinical care awards, special meals and treats, and much more.
