2015 Nursing Awards
Lisa Buttner, LPN; and
Several nurses were nominated by their peers and physicians, and, after careful review during a blind selection process by HRMC's Nursing Leadership, Lisa Buttner, LPN, and Wayne Stover, RN, were selected to receive the "2015 Nursing Excellence Award".
Beverly Schneider, RN, (recently retired after many years at HRMC) was chosen to receive a "Lifetime of Excellence" nursing award. Most recently, Bev split her time between nursing in the Post-Anesthesia Care Unit (PACU) and serving as Coordinator of HRMC's Bariatric Services.
New this year was a "Friends of Nursing Award", given to individuals not in nursing, but who support nursing at HRMC through significant collaboration and cooperation. The recipients of the 2015 "Friends of Nursing Award" were Registered Dietician Christine Meissner, MS, RD; and HRMC's dedicated and innovative Pharmacy Department.
All of the awards were presented at HRMC in May, during National Nurses Week.
For all they do, and the compassionate, quality care they give to our patients on a daily basis, we thank these dedicated health care professionals for a job well done!
HRMC to Host Annual Meeting and
Pre-Meeting Featured Presentation
On Thursday, June 4th, Hackettstown Regional Medical Center will host its Annual Meeting. At 11am, HRMC President Jason Coe will present the medical center's 2014 Annual Report and will cover highlights and issues of importance for the thousands of individuals who count on HRMC for their healthcare needs.
At 10am, one hour prior to the start of the Annual Meeting, HRMC's Bob Stead will offer one of his popular "Back in Time" presentations, "Conquering Polio". This presentation will offer a brief overview of the development of the polio vaccine and vaccination efforts that have saved countless lives. As we approach the 60th anniversary of the first polio vaccine, the rare incidence of new polio cases is indicative of the near universal elimination of the virus. The successful effort to eradicate the polio virus is truly an amazing medical story involving dedicated global research and cooperation.
Both the "Conquering Polio" presentation and the Annual Meeting will be held in the Gene C. Milton Conference Room in the West Wing of Hackettstown Regional Medical Center. more
