New Beacons of Excellence!

ICN-Beacon-Award-group-shot_croppedCongratulations to the staffs of the Intensive Care Nursery (shown at left) and the Post Anesthesia Care Unit for each receiving the prestigious silver-level Beacon Award for Excellence from the American Association of Critical Care Nurses. This award recognizes units that embrace and support evidence-based practice to improve patient outcomes, and exemplify excellence in professional practice and patient care.

The neonatal ICU is the only one in the region to win the silver level Beacon and one of only two in the entire state. At a special celebration in the ICN, chief nursing executive Regina Cunningham, PhD, congratulated the staff on their “great work. This is a huge honor that reflects your collaboration. All of your initiatives make a huge difference to both the parents and infants.”
