St. Mary’s Healthcare System for Children Celebrates Nursing Week

St. Mary’s Nursing Staff Recognized for the Compassionate Care they Provide to Patients

On Wednesday, May 6th, kicking off National Nurses Week, St. Mary’s Healthcare System for Children recognized the hard work and dedication of all their nurses and commended them for the compassionate care they provide to patients.

St. Mary’s is one of the region’s largest providers of post-acute pediatric care for children with special needs and it’s nursing staff extends care to over 4,000 children throughout the New York Metropolitan area through a diverse number of inpatient, home care and community programs.

Committed to educating and raising awareness about the importance of healthcare, the nurses of St. Mary’s are always working hard to help improve the quality of life for children and their families.

The festivities at St. Mary’s began with an afternoon of freshly baked goods, prizes, awards, and heartfelt thanks and acknowledgments from all staff members including Burton Grebin, MD, President & CEO of St. Mary’s, and Kathryn Lang, Director of Nursing Services.

The celebrations will continue with breakfasts, award ceremonies, and community events held at each of our inpatient facilities located in Bayside, Queens and Ossining, Westchester, as well as at our home care and community program offices based in New Hyde Park, Melville, Roslyn, and Yonkers.

Observed annually from May 6th-12th, National Nurses Week is one of the nation’s largest healthcare events that salutes nurses across the country for their continued efforts and meaningful contributions to maintaining the health and overall well-being of the nation. The week long celebrations gives organizations the opportunity to recognize nurses for their year-long accomplishments, and it also gives all nurses a few moments to reflect on the rewarding and inspiring career they have chosen.
