Spotlight on our Nurses
Ramona Crone, RN, a staff nurse on the Heart and Vascular Unit, came in with her family in on Christmas Eve, decked out for the season and ready to deliver fresh baked cookies to the patients on the unit. What a neat thing to do for others!
Vanessa Rivas, RN, a new grad nurse on Joint and Spine, sent this photo of the crew of nurses on JSU who attended Salisbury University. “We all happened to work together yesterday and decided to take a picture,” she stated. “Cathy Herrman, RN, graduated in December 2014, Brendan Glowacki, RN, in May of 2015, and Kaitlynn Ford, RN, and I both graduated together in May of 2016!”
Evelyn Farkas, RN, and Carly Hresko, RN, both Mother Baby nurses, spent 12 days assisting a medical relief team in the jungles of Nicaragua. This particular trip was a humanitarian mission, giving aid to a community recently hit by a devastating hurricane.
Our AAMC community provided more than 200 food baskets, along with more than $3,000 in grocery gift cards to benefit families in need. More than 80 departments helped make this happen.
