Doctors Hospital of Manteca Celebrates Nurses for National Nurses WeekMay 5, 2022
Manteca, Calif. – Doctors Hospital of Manteca is proud to honor our nurses during National Nurses Week, an annual celebration that recognizes the critical role nurses perform in our hospital and for our community. This year, we recognize our nurses for their continued commitment and unfailing dedication to our patients and their families and for always being our foundation of healing.
“Doctors Hospital of Manteca recognizes, acknowledges, and trusts the strong commitment, compassion, expertise and care our nurses display in their practice and profession,” said Eleze Armstrong, CEO of Doctors Hospital of Manteca. “We rely on them for guidance, support, and expertise in keeping our patients, staff, and community safe and healthy.”
Our nurses have many roles – staff nurse, nursing leader, educator, infection preventionist, nurse practitioner and more, and they serve these roles with a passion for the profession and a strong commitment to patient safety.
National Nurses Week (May 6-12) is celebrated annually to coincide with the birthday of Florence Nightingale, the founder of modern nursing, on May 12. Like Florence Nightingale, our nurses have served with passion and dedication, fighting for their patients during the pandemic. Today, as Florence Nightingale did in her time, our nurses represent a profession of advocacy and strength and are respected for their unwavering devotion to our patients, their families and each other.
“It is always a pleasure, and never a surprise, when we receive cards or emails from patients recognizing our nurses and the compassionate care they have delivered,” Armstrong added. “The heartbeat of the hospital is sustained by the quality care delivered at the bedside with empathy, competence and excellence. None of this would be possible without the talents and energy that our nurses and nurse leaders bring to work each day.”Doctors Hospital of Manteca celebrated our nurses on May 2-6 with special theme days throughout the week in honor of Nurses Week.
