High standards of quality, exceptional patient care and an unwavering commitment to serve patients and families.
Those are a few of the characteristics that earned two University of Minnesota Health nurses the honor of being named among 2014 Outstanding Nurses by Mpls.St.Paul Magazine.
Mandy Seymour, RN, BAN, University of Minnesota Masonic Children’s Hospital, and Margaret Bohman, RN, ACNS-BC, OCN and CHTP, University of Minnesota Health Cancer Care at Fairview Southdale Hospital, were honored for going “above and beyond the call of duty.”
The magazine asked doctors, nurses and patients to recommend nurses who go out of their way to provide exceptional care.
“I am proud of all of our nurses and especially proud of Mandy and Margaret,” says Laura Reed, chief nursing executive, University of Minnesota Health. “The men and women nominated for these awards were of exceptionally high caliber, and I am honored to work with all of our finalists and award winners."
Six University of Minnesota Health nurses were finalists: Shannon Beasley and Adam Pardo, University of Minnesota Masonic Children’s Hospital; Mary Messer, University of Minnesota Medical Center; Cathy Bowlin and Yvonne Michele Zent, University of Minnesota Physicians; and Betty Bishop, University of Minnesota Pediatric Rheumatology.
The nurses will be featured in the magazine’s September print edition.
