Thank you, Nurses! Celebrating with our 2020 Heart of Health Care honorees.

  • 0

In years past, the Nurses: The Heart of Health Care recipients were celebrated at a luncheon and awards ceremony. This year, due to coronavirus restrictions, each recipient’s family and friends gathered at the honoree’s residence or workplace to celebrate their service with a special Heart of Health Care Thank-You celebration. The celebrations ranged from small gatherings of immediate family to nearly 20 coworkers (socially-distanced, of course).

This unique celebration garnered attention throughout the day, with the winning nurses receiving a plaque and gift box containing a gooey butter cake and gift card from Art of Entertaining, a gift card from Kenrick’s Meats & Catering, a gift card and cookie from Espresso Yourself Coffee & Café and a bottle of wine from Noboleis Vineyards. Each recipient was grateful for the recognition. One nurse summed up her experience after her coworkers surprised her at her ceremony, “If I could give every one of you a hug, I would!”
