Yale New Haven Health System and Northeast Medical Group celebrated the outstanding patient care provided by its nursing staff, every day, during National Nurses Week, May 7-11.

Prathibha Varkey, MBBS, NEMG president and CEO, shared a video with all NEMG clinicians, staff and senior leadership to honor the annual event and an ad featuring nurses from across YNHHS and NEMG appeared in newspapers throughout Connecticut and Rhode Island.

Dr. Varkey commented on the theme of this year’s event: Nurses: Inspire, Innovate and Influence, stating “For Yale New Haven Health System nurses, this is more than a theme: it’s who you are. Every day, you provide outstanding care to patients of all ages, in inpatient and outpatient settings all over the region. Through research, professional development and shared governance, all of you strive to continuously improve your own practice and that of other healthcare professionals – throughout YNHHS, the country and the world.”
