DALLAS – Medical City Dallas Hospital is pleased to announce that seven of the hospital’s nurses have received recognition as DFW’s “The Great 100 Nurses.”

From Medical City Children’s Hospital, Heather Boyd, Stephanie McDonald, Kelsey Vinson and LaShay Powell received the 2016 award. Nenita Cuellar, Carolyn Schaefer and Kelly Cole were recognized from Medical City Dallas Hospital.

“I am extremely proud of these seven honorees and the nursing team that they are a part of here at Medical City Dallas Hospital and Medical City Children’s Hospital,” said Dr. Zach Mueller, DNP, RN, NEA-BC, Chief Nursing Executive of Medical City Dallas Hospital.  “This honor recognizes the special expertise, passion and commitment to the excellent care our nurses consistently provide to our patients and our communities.”

“Our seven honorees embody everything ‘The Great 100 Nurses’ program stands for – both on the job and off,” said Angie Buckmeier, MHA, BSN, RN, Vice President and Chief Nursing Officer of Medical City Children’s Hospital. “They are deserving of this community recognition and I am honored to work with each nurse and recognize their valuable accomplishments.”

“The Great 100 Nurses” event recognizes registered nurses for their excellence in the art and science of nursing. Nurses were nominated by peers and selected because they are role models, leaders, community servants, compassionate caregivers and significant contributors to the nursing profession. Honorees come from all practice areas in nursing, including acute care, sub-acute care, school nursing, nurse leaders, academics and more.

The seven Medical City nurses were recognized during the 2016 DFW Great 100 Nurses Celebration on May 3, 2016 at the Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center.
