As it does every year, GBMC HealthCare celebrated National Nurses Week from May 6 - 12 to recognize its talented nurses. This year, GBMC had extra cause for celebration; Baltimore magazine named six members of GBMC's nursing staff as 'Top Nurses of 2016' in its Excellence in Nursing issue! Chosen by their peers from among thousands of nurses throughout the Baltimore region, these six outstanding professionals were selected in five different specialties and represented 11 percent of all winners.
Honorees include Justine Kellar (Management/Nurse Executives), Shannon Isaac (Orthopedics), Joseph Henry (Pediatrics-Neonatal), Laura Clary (Women's Health), Sherry Pearson (Women's Health) and Erin Batton (Hospice/Home Health/Palliative Care). A complete list of all nurses recognized can be found online at www.baltimoremagazine.net/top-nurses-2016.
According to GBMC President and CEO John Chessare, MD, “Nurses and nursing support technicians are the backbone of GBMC. They spend the most time with patients and are critically important members of the healthcare team. Their untiring work at the bedside and in improving patient safety and redesigning systems to improve care is remarkable.” GBMC is proud of its exemplary caregivers and this truly deserved recognition.
