Nursing Recognition Celebration

November 8, 2012 – This year marked the 13th Anniversary of The Ottawa Hospital’s Nursing Recognition Celebration. On Thursday, November 8, 2012 over 300 nurses came together at the Hampton Inn Convention Centre for an award ceremony to recognize their professional accomplishments.

Cheryl Anne Smith, Corporate Coordinator for Nursing Recruitment, Retention and Recognition at The Ottawa Hospital (TOH), said “We are very lucky to have the community support for our nurses making it possible for them to continue their education, conduct research and spread the message about the great work being done at TOH.”

This year’s award recipients included:

  • Susan McNeely – Wendy Nicklin Professional Image of Nursing Award
  • Nancy Parent – Sue Robblee Clinical Practice Award

The recipients of these awards are all well respected nurses whose impressive commitment to patient care and education has been nothing short of spectacular.

The Annual Team Nursing Award allows a patient or family to nominate a team of nurses that best exemplifies TOH’s values of compassion, commitment to quality, team work and respect for the individual. This year’s award was presented to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit team at the General Campus, by the patient and family who nominated them.

This year, TOH had award nominations from all campuses. This is a true testament to the outstanding care provided at TOH and all of the hospital’s nurses should be proud of their achievements.
