To the editor:
Lawrence Memorial Hospital is celebrating National Nurses Week May 6-12. The purpose of National Nurses Week is to raise public awareness of the value of nursing and to help educate the public about the vital roles nurses play in meeting the health care needs of the community and the American people. In honor of the dedication, commitment and tireless effort of the nearly 3.1 million nurses nationwide who promote and maintain the health of this nation, LMH is proud to recognize nurses everywhere during this week for the quality work they provide seven days a week, 365 days a year.
LMH will recognize its nurses with a hospital celebration on May 8, as well as other activities throughout the week. The 2013 Nurses Day Planning Committee has worked tirelessly to make this year’s celebration the best ever! It is my honor and privilege to call them my esteemed colleagues. To the over 450 nurses at LMH, those in Lawrence and nurses around the nation, Happy Nurses Week!
