Nursing at Suburban Hospital
For more than 70 years, nursing has been at the center of patient care at Suburban Hospital. Over time, new technologies have improved the way we care for patients in our hospital. But the one thing that has not changed is the time-honored tradition of caring and compassionate nursing at Suburban Hospital.
Nursing excellence isn’t something we simply strive for, it is our standard.
It is achieved through a commitment to professional nursing and dedication to superior patient care. Nurses at Suburban Hospital provide the highest level of care by applying evidence-based best practices, collaboration, compassion and integrity. Our staff of almost 500 nurses are constantly learning, mentoring and seeking to apply the most recent clinical innovations in all areas of the hospital.
As an integral part of the care team, our nurses have a wide range of clinical choices including:
- Adult Medical/Surgical
- Behavioral Health
- Cardiothoracic Open Heart Recovery
- Clinical Decision Unit
- Emergency Services
- Intensive Care
- Operating Room
- And many more
Our nurses are encouraged to participate in the nursing governance structure and they are provided with professional development opportunities, mentorship and exposure to the latest clinical innovations. The work of nurse practitioners is especially important and valued within the Suburban care community. Read more about nursing at Suburban Hospital in the 2016 Sondra D. Bender Annual Nursing Report.
Nurses at Suburban Hospital follow six principles that guide them in their work at the bedside, in the OR, in the field, as educators and wherever they serve patients.
