Middletown, NY- Orange Regional Medical Center, in conjunction with health care facilities across the nation, is celebrating National Nurses Week from May 6 to May 12. Every year, National Nurses Week focuses attention on the diverse ways nurses work to save lives and improve the health of our community.
Orange Regional is honoring more than 900 of its nurses who go above and beyond on a daily basis to provide high quality, compassionate care for our patients and their families. National Nurses Week is an opportunity to raise public awareness of the value of nursing and educate the public about the role nurses play in meeting the healthcare needs of our patients.
“Our nurses are the backbone of our organization,” says Orange Regional’s Vice President of Patient Care Services & Chief Nursing Officer, Joanne Ritter-Teitel, PhD, RN, CEA-BC. “Their hard work and commitment in providing the best care possible is exemplified on a daily basis. Our nurses provide comfort to patients and their family members. I wish to thank our nurses for their time, talents and dedication.”
Orange Regional’s Nursing Department is working toward the achievement of Magnet Recognition Program® status. This Program recognizes healthcare organizations for quality patient care, nursing excellence and innovations in professional nursing practice.
