Nursing at Deaconess
A message from our CNO:
Deaconess Nurses are at the forefront of Deaconess Hospital’s excellence. On a daily basis they provide the highest quality of care that is centered on the patient and family within units and across campuses. Deaconess Nurses are compassionate and caring professionals that will do whatever it takes for their patients. Bringing cheer and hope is important to Deaconess Nurses and they do it every day. Whether by holding a hand, wiping a tear, or being a listening ear, our nurses make a huge difference in the lives of patients and families of the tri-state. Deaconess is a health system that is committed to providing excellent care for every patient, every day. Central to our vision is a commitment to excellence in nursing practice, nursing education, nursing leadership and nursing research.
Deaconess Hospital, Deaconess Gateway Hospital and Deaconess Cross Pointe are proud to be designated as Magnet facilities by the American Nurses Credentialing Center. This accomplishment is a result of leadership of all levels of nurses shown through the unit-based councils, the Nursing Shared Governance Councils, Healthy Work Environment teams, interdisciplinary teams, core care teams and other nurse-led initiatives that result in great patient care.
I invite you to experience Deaconess Nurses’ pride throughout our website. We are positioned as an integrated health care team to accomplish even more in the interest of extraordinary patient care. Thank you for considering joining the Deaconess team, you have a choice and we hope you choose Deaconess.
