Dear nursing colleagues,
The American Nurses Association national theme for Nurses Week is “Year of The Nurse – 2020.” How true this theme has played out for us!
At no time in the last 100 years have nurses been more critical to their communities than now. This is so true for us in Western New York and Kaleida Health. Your compassion, clinical expertise and dedication to our patients and each other is absolutely heroic. We admire your determination every day. Now during this trying time, your unparalleled level of devotion and perseverance is extraordinary. Your commitment and professionalism comes as no surprise to me or our Kaleida Health family. We honor your integrity and passion as caregivers.
Celebration of Nurses Week will be different for us as we face this pandemic. However, please know the recognition, appreciation and respect for you and your work is strong!
On behalf of our Kaleida Health leadership team, please accept our sincere thanks and gratitude for all you do every single day.
Cheryl Klass, RN
Chief Nurse Executive
