'Great 100 Nurses' List Includes 26 From Texas Health Resources

ARLINGTON, Texas – Texas Health Resources (THR) had more nurses named to the Texas Nurses’ Association’s 2008 “Great 100 Nurses” list than any other North Texas health care system. The list recognizes nurses who are role models and have made a significant difference in nursing, in their hospitals and in the lives of patients.

Twenty-six registered nurses across THR’s 13-hospital system were designated this year as “Great 100 Nurses.” The list of “Great 100 Nurses” is selected each year by the Texas Nurses’ Association.

“I am so proud of each THR nurse honored among the ‘Great 100,’” said THR Chief Executive Officer Douglas D. Hawthorne. “These women and men set an example for all of us because of the hard work they do every single day and their dedication to the medical care and personal needs of each patient they serve. People like these inspire others around them to become nurses, for which we are truly grateful.”

The THR hospitals represented include Arlington Memorial Hospital, Harris Methodist Fort Worth Hospital, Harris Methodist H•E•B Hospital, Harris Methodist Northwest Hospital, Harris Methodist Walls Regional Hospital, Presbyterian Hospital of Allen, Presbyterian Hospital of Dallas and Presbyterian Hospital of Plano.

The “Great 100 Nurses” will be honored by the Texas Nurses Association, Districts 3 and 4, and the Dallas-Fort Worth Nurse Executives at the 18th annual gala on Monday, May 12 at the Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center.
