Hurley Honors Nurses “Delivering Quality and Innovation in Patient Care” During Nurses Week
FLINT, Michigan – “Delivering Quality and Innovation in Patient Care” is the national theme of this year’s Nurses Week. Often described as an art and a science, nursing is a profession that embraces dedicated people with varied interests, strengths and passions because of the many opportunities the profession offers. Today, nurses have many roles – from staff nurse to educator to nurse practitioner and nurse researcher – and serve all of them with passion for the profession, and a strong dedication and commitment to patient safety.
On May 6 through 10, 2013, Hurley Medical Center is proud to honor nurses, celebrating the clinical excellence, contributions and commitments our nurses make around the clock. Hurley is proud to honor our entire nursing staff during Nurses Week.
Nurses at Hurley Medical Center continue a 105 year-old tradition of trusting and care, providing “Clinical Excellence, Service to People,” day in and day out. At Hurley, the patient always comes first, and our outstanding nursing team provides world-class patient and family-centered care, around the clock. We invite the entire Genesee County community and beyond to join us in our celebration of Nurses Week and appreciation for our premier nurses. We are proud of our nursing staff—they provide the highest quality clinical care, commitment and dedication to patient safety, each and every day,” said Teresa Bourque, RN, BSN, Chief Nurse and Senior Administrator of Nursing at Hurley Medical Center.
