This designation not only reminds us of our values, keeping our existing team appropriately oriented, but will be used to help like-minded professionals considering joining our ranks. I firmly believe that we have the most stable and capable nursing workforce in our markets, and they deserve to work alongside peers with the same high standards. I strongly feel that this is a great sign of the good things that are to come in this new year.”
