To the editor:
At Northeast Health System, we strive to provide exceptional nursing care: every patient, everywhere, every time. Many consider our nurses the heart and soul of Northeast Health System, and we agree.
That is why we celebrate our nurses and their unparalleled commitment during National Nurses Week.
The values of our nursing team are comprised of three pillars: compassion, respect and trust. As frontline care providers, they work tirelessly to meet the needs of our patients at all hours of the day and night.
Our nurses provide highly skilled, expert care with dignity and kindness throughout our network of hospitals and behavioral health services including Addison Gilbert, Beverly and BayRidge hospitals; Beverly Hospital at Danvers Medical and Day Surgery Center; Northeast Behavioral Health; and Northeast Senior Health.
Their compassion and care are not only specific to the patient, it extends to our patients' families and to the communities that we are proud to serve. As local members of the community, we are not only health-care leaders, we have also been patients, and can speak first hand as to the kindness, compassion and professionalism our nurses bring to each and every patient.
On behalf of the Board of Trustees, administration, physicians and all of the employees at Northeast Health System, we thank to all of our nurses for making our health system truly exceptional.
