Meet the extraordinary Decatur-area 'Heart of Health Care' honorees

  • Updated
  • 0

Our "Heart of Health Care" special project chronciles the incredible contribution the nursing profession provides to our community. They are on the front lines ensuring we are safe and healthy, from clinics, physicians’ offices and nursing homes to schools, operating rooms and battlefields. They educate, comfort, assist and mend. They lead.

COVID-19 has brought into focus the critical importance of nurses in our society. Nurses are on the frontlines of the fight, despite increased medical risk and personal sacrifice.

Nurses’ Week is May 6–12 and was created by the American Nurses Association to recognize, honor and celebrate nurses for the work they do for others. The Herald & Review and our partners are honored to recognize this vital and tireless profession.

How they were selected

Our honorees were nominated by our readers. We received 40 nominations ranging from those just starting out to ones who have been licensed for years.

An independent panel of judges picked nine. The 10th was selected by our readers.
