Message from Jacky Schultz, MSN, RN, CNAA, Suburban Hospital President
Nursing at Suburban Hospital carries special meaning for me. A career nurse myself, I know firsthand the challenges and obstacles that clinical nurses face daily on the front lines of patient care. I also know that all of our nurses pour their hearts and souls into providing the best care possible for every patient and family.
Patients in the hospital receive care from nurses more than any other type of care provider. It is the nurses and patient care technicians who urge patients to get up and get moving, encourage patients and families to ask questions and actively engage in their care, and educate the next generation of caregivers by exemplifying the principles of nursing.
Our nurses are soaring far above our highest expectations. Daily, they advocate for evidence-based care models, implement best practices, and lead conversations about how to continually enhance their own knowledge and the knowledge of those around them.
When I look for leadership at Suburban Hospital, I know I will find countless examples among our nursing team.
Message from LeighAnn Sidone, MSN, RN, OCN, CENP, Vice President/Chief Nursing Officer
Suburban’s nursing team is tirelessly dedicated to excellence, from the patient bedside to training and educational pursuits and out into our community.
One thing I’m truly proud of is the engagement of our clinical nurses in efforts to improve safety and care across the hospital and beyond. Nurses have always been our organization’s pulse. Today, they’re also driving the adoption of evidence-based best practices across Suburban Hospital. Our nurses are embracing the new world of patient safety and quality data. I see clinical nurses at the bedside finding small ways to improve their daily practice, measuring the outcomes of those efforts, and reporting their successes (and opportunities to improve) in transparent ways to share what works and what doesn’t with colleagues in every specialty.
In my nearly 25 years at Suburban Hospital, I’m continually impressed by the collegiality and collaboration that goes on within our walls. Building partnerships to advocate for change is challenging, but our nurses and their amazing colleagues embrace that challenge with one goal in mind: providing the best care environment for every person who comes to our hospital.
I am proud to be a member of Suburban’s nursing team.
