Piedmont Medical Center Celebrates National Nurses Week 2024

May 7, 2024

ROCK HILL, S.C. ― Piedmont Medical Center Rock Hill and Piedmont Medical Center Fort Mill are proud to honor our nurses during National Nurses Week, May 6-12. This annual celebration recognizes the critical role nurses perform in our hospital and for our community.

National Nurses Week is celebrated annually to coincide with the birthday of Florence Nightingale, the founder of modern nursing, on May 12. Like Florence Nightingale, our nurses serve with passion and dedication, fighting for their patients every day. As Florence Nightingale did in her time, our nurses represent a profession of advocacy and strength.

“Every day, we are thankful to all of our nurses and humbled by the way they care for our patients,” said Teresa Urquhart, Market CEO over Piedmont Medical Center Rock Hill, and Piedmont Fort Mill. “Our nurses are respected for their unwavering devotion to our patients, their families and each other. Their resilience, leadership, support, and immense sensitivity are at the heart of our continued focus to deliver compassionate care.”

Our nurses have many roles – staff nurse, nursing leader, educator, infection preventionist, nurse practitioner and more. They serve these roles with a passion for the profession, their patients, team members and a strong commitment to patient safety.

“Nurses Week is a special time of year to celebrate the remarkable nurses, healthcare workers and team members of Piedmont Medical Center,” said Chris Mitchell, CEO of Piedmont Medical Center Fort Mill. “We are grateful to all of our teams every day for putting our patients first and for their essential support to ensure every patient in our community receives high-quality care.”

To our nurses, we say thank you for being champions of care. You cheer patients up when they need encouragement and advocate for the greatest good. Thank you for your steadfast care – a vital sign of your devotion to your patients and each other. We are Better Together because of you.
