Care Dimensions Celebrates Nurses during National Nurses Week
Care Dimensions, the largest provider of hospice and palliative care services in Massachusetts, celebrated National Nurses Week, May 6 -12 by honoring its nurses, many of whom are board certified in hospice and palliative care.
Care Dimensions’ new President & CEO, Patricia Ahern, a 40-year veteran in the field of nursing, said, “The capacity to explain complicated medical information is something that everyone values about nurses and the confidence that people have in the technical skills of nurses is remarkable. More importantly, nurses are gifted with the ability to discern the worry and apprehension that folks can’t quite get into words when they are feeling vulnerable and isolated.”
The following Care Dimensions nurses from Acton were recognized for their professionalism, leadership and commitment to excellence in patient care at Care Dimensions: Catherine Duffy, NP and Patricia Hamilton, RN.
Since our founding in 1978, our nurses have helped to make the time of advanced illness dignified and meaningful for patients and their families. We welcome new members to our team of caring, compassionate nurses. Visit www.CareDimensions.org/careers to learn more.
