nurses week

Every day, we at Cheshire Medical Center/Dartmouth-Hitchcock Keene, appreciate the caring, compassion, and commitment of our nurses. They truly make a difference and add a vital dimension in our ability to offer high quality, compassionate, and professional care. National Nurses Week, celebrated between May 6th- May 12th provides a special opportunity to recognize our 400+ nurses and their community nursing colleagues who work hand in hand to improve the health of those who live and work in the communities served by our organization. We would like to extend a special thanks to our nurses for the leadership they provide in each of their roles as they embrace new technologies, develop new systems, resolve emerging issues, and adapt to the ever-changing environment in healthcare.

Nurses work in a variety of clinical settings and serve in many roles. At Cheshire Medical Center/Dartmouth-Hitchcock Keene we are fortunate to include staff nurses, nursing educators, nurse practitioners, nurse managers, nurse midwives, nurse anesthetists, and others nursing professionals as members of our healthcare team. Nurses share a focus- dedicated effort to restoring, improving and maintaining health to our patients. 

In our community we are also fortunate to have public health nurses, school nurses, home health care nurses, mental health nurses, chronic care nurses and other nursing professionals who care for those who are sick or injured and work to help keep our friends, families, and neighbors healthy. Cheshire Medical Center/Dartmouth-Hitchcock Keene continues to work closely with its community partners to realize our vision of becoming the healthiest community in the nation by the year 2020.

Twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, nurses are making a difference in the health of our community. For this, and for many other reasons, we thank them, honor them, and express our heartfelt gratitude for their invaluable contributions to our patients and families, our organization, and community.
