While National Nurses Week is May 6-12, Summa Health will be celebrating May 9-13. Nurses Week is an annual opportunity to honor the contributions and positive impact of America’s four million registered nurses, the largest group of healthcare professionals in the United States.
Since the COVID-19 pandemic, honoring our nurses is even more significant, which is why the American Nurses Association has designated May as Nurses Month.
Summa Health is proud to honor our 2,100 nurses who – fueled by compassion, empathy and kindness – provide the highest quality of care to hundreds of thousands of patients throughout Northeast Ohio. The past year, the difference our Summa Health nurses made on patients and families, colleagues, and our community was particularly evident. These genuine heroes sacrificed time away from loved ones. They risked exposure to care for patients and each other. And, they remained flexible, serving wherever they were needed throughout the system.
To all of our heroes – and especially our nurses – thank you and happy Nurses Week!
