Three HMEC Nurses Named to ‘Great 100’ List|
STEPHENVILLE, Texas – The Texas Nurses Association named three nurses on staff at Harris Methodist Erath County Hospital to its annual list of “Great 100 Nurses.” Mary Ceglia, Marilynn Knight and Mary Pack were selected from registered nurses considered role models and who make a significant difference in nursing, their hospital and the lives of patients, peers and their community.
In addition to Harris Methodist Erath County Hospital, nurses at ten other Texas Health Resources facilities were named to the “Great 100” list. The hospitals include Arlington Memorial Hospital, Harris Methodist Fort Worth Hospital, Harris Methodist HEB Hospital, Harris Methodist Northwest Hospital, Harris Methodist Southwest Hospital, Harris Methodist Walls Regional Hospital, Presbyterian Hospital of Allen, Presbyterian Hospital of Dallas and Presbyterian Hospital of Plano. A total of 34 THR nurses have been named to the “Great 100" list for 2006 – more than twice as many nurses as any other Metroplex hospital system.
“We are very proud to have three of our own named to the Texas Nurses Association Great 100 list,” said Harris Methodist Erath County Hospital president Deborah Paganelli. “Their work and service is a testament to our ongoing commitment to improve the communities we serve.”
The nurses will be honored by the Texas Nurses Association, Districts Three and Four, and the Dallas-Fort Worth Nurse Executives at the 16th annual gala held May 15 at the Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center in Dallas.
