Nurses the Heart of Health Care

Nurses the Heart of Health Care

If you want to see care in action, follow a nurse. They know a single moment can change an entire life, so they bring exceptional training and tremendous heart to every encounter. One patient at a time, they do a world of good.

The community came together Wednesday, May 11 at the Tribune’s fourth annual “Nurses: The Heart of Health Care” luncheon to share their why's – how they were inspired by the nurses who made an impact in their lives. The event recognized 13 nurses who have excelled at providing care for patients and their families. CHI St. Alexius Health is proud to be a founding sponsor of the event, which was held at Bismarck State College's National Energy Center of Excellence.

Congratulations to Liz Diffely, Garrison Memorial Hospital, CHI St. Alexius Health Garrison; Danette Heinle, Maternity, CHI St. Alexius Health Bismarck; and Lacye Knudsen, Heart and Vascular Lab, CHI St. Alexius Health Bismarck, for being chosen amongst the top 13 nurses in Bismarck-Mandan! They were nominated by their peers and community for recognition.

Our physicians, nurses, and employees are our difference. Together, we are committed to providing high quality, patient-centered care for our patients each and every day. In honor of National Nurses Week, we honor all nurses today and every day.

The Bismarck Tribune published a special section featuring stories of the honored nurses. Read more about the event and the honorees.
