Celebrating the Year of the Nurse and Midwife

WellSpan is celebrating the Year of the Nurse and Midwife throughout 2020.  Designated by the World Health Organization, this year was designated in honor of the 200th Birthday of Florence Nightingale, who is commonly known as the founder of modern, compassionate nursing.

Kris O’Shea, Senior Vice President and Chief Nursing Executive for WellSpan Health, understands the importance that this compassion brings to our community.  

“I am so proud of the nurses because I think that they really go extra steps to get to know their patient and to do what’s right for their patient,” said O’Shea.

We look forward to celebrating the hard work of nurses all year long at the following hospitals and affiliates: WellSpan Chambersburg Hospital, WellSpan Ephrata Community Hospital, WellSpan Gettysburg Hospital, WellSpan Good Samaritan Hospital, WellSpan Philhaven, WellSpan Surgery & Rehabilitation Hospital, WellSpan Waynesboro Hospital, WellSpan York Hospital and the WellSpan Medical Group.

Make sure to visit WellSpan.org/YearoftheNurse to read inspirational stories of the nurses from these locations throughout the year.
