Borgess-Lee Memorial Hospital Nurses Week

DOWAGIAC, MI – Borgess-Lee Memorial Hospital will celebrate and honor its nurses during National Nurses Week, May 6-12.

“Florence [Nightingale] understood the value of nursing, from compassion and caring to the science and critical-thinking components,” said Katie Brick, chief nursing officer, Borgess-Lee Memorial Hospital. “Nurses at Borgess-Lee give high-quality patient care through both compassion and exceptional outcomes. On behalf of our organization, I wish to thank our nurses for their dedication and talents.”

Every year, National Nurses Week focuses attention on the diverse ways America’s 3.1 million registered nurses work to save lives and improve the health of countless individuals. National Nurses Week begins on May 6, marked as National Nurses Day, and ends on May 12, the birthday of Florence Nightingale, founder of nursing as a modern profession. The American Nurses Association, through its 54 constituent member associations, advances the profession by fostering high standards of nursing practice, promoting economic and general welfare, advocating for a positive and realistic view of nursing, and lobbying Congress and the regulatory agencies on health care issues affecting nurses and the public.
