Congratulations, Gillette nurses!

Posted On: 10/12/2011

Whether they’re brightening a hospitalized child’s day, calming an anxious family before a surgery, or helping to navigate a busy outpatient clinic appointment, nurses play an essential role in the work we do at Gillette.

It comes as no surprise that, last weekend, three of our nurses were recognized by the March of Dimes’ Nurse of the Year Awards for their dedication, compassion, and contributions as nurses. Gail Busch, a nurse on our orthopedic/surgical unit, and Jennifer Essen, an education specialist in our surgery department, received Nurse of the Year recognition in the Pediatric and Rising Star categories, respectively.  And in an exciting surprise, pediatric nurse practitioner Sarah Gutknecht was named 2011′s Distinguished Nurse of the Year!  Click here for more on our Nurse of the Year awards winners.

We know that Sarah, Gail, and Jennifer’s recognition reflects the outstanding work performed daily by Gillette’s more than 250 nurses.  Congratulations to our entire nursing team!
