In the last 10 years, over 100 of our nurses have been nominated for the esteemed Nightingale Award from the Colorado Nurses Foundation. These individuals are recognized as outstanding nurses; as effective advocates for patients, families, and staff; as leaders in their profession; and as role models for excellence in delivering patient care.
