Kenmore Mercy Hospital capped off National Nurses Week by recognizing some of its best nurses during a special ceremony held on May 12, Florence Nightingale’s birthday. Each year, the Catholic Health hospital takes one day to show its thanks to the men and women who specialize in patient care. Many of those nurses packed into the hospital’s Community Room for the ceremony.
Annette Gillies was chosen as Nurse of Distinction, Debbie Micholas was chosen as Outstanding Staff Nurse, and Michelle Giallella was chosen as Nurse’s Aide of Distinction.
