HCA - Mountain Division
I am thrilled to kick off the Mountain Division Nursing Newsletter during Nurses Week!
It is an exciting time to be a part of the HCA Healthcare Nursing community, spanning 21 states, 1,800 sites of care, and includes more than 94,000 registered nurses working to deliver healthier tomorrows every day, every time.
Beginning in 1993, the American Nurses Association (ANA) declared May 6-12 as the national week to celebrate and elevate the nursing profession. In 2019, the nation recognizes the positive impact of America's four million registered nurses and celebrates their vast contributions. Without a doubt, Mountain Division and our HCA Healthcare family have infinite reasons to celebrate our 94,000 registered nurses.
One in every 50 nurses in America works at HCA Healthcare and makes a positive impact, caring for patients with compassion and purpose, providing care that exceeds the expectations of patients and their families. In addition, HCA Healthcare nurses, including the more than 3,000 nurses in the HCA Healthcare Mountain Division, care for each other and their colleagues without fail. You are the reason we are a great team and a great organization.
We celebrate you and thank you for the compassionate care you deliver to every patient as if they are your own family. Happy Nurses Week and thank you for all you do each day to deliver care that promises patients a healthier tomorrow.
