HONOLULU (HI Now) - Nurses touch our lives. Many of us have had nurses take care of us, our family and our friends. They are at the forefront of patient care and that is why we want to share our thanks during National Nurses Week.
More than 2,300 registered nurses work at Hawai’i Pacific Health and its medical facilities: Kapi’olani Medical Center for Women & Children, Pali Momi Medical Center, Straub Medical Center and clinics, Wilcox Medical Center and Kaua’i Medical Clinics. More than 1,700 work at the bedside.
HPH nurses provide expert, excellent and compassionate care for the people across Hawai’i. More than half of the nurses at Hawai’i Pacific Health have been there for more than a decade, adding experience to that long list of qualities we love about HPH nurses.
Caring for patients is their No. 1 priority, but the nurses at HPH do so much more. They publish research, volunteer to mentor new and future nurses, and are innovating new ways to move nursing forward and solve challenges for health care organizations across the nation.
HPH is actively committed to supporting the professional growth of HPH nurses, as well as teaching the next generation of Hawaiʻi nurses.
Amy Thomas, MSN, APRN, FNP is a nurse and Hawaiʻi Pacific Health’s system chief nurse executive. She shares more about these programs and sends a heartfelt thanks to the nurses who care for us all.
