There has never been a more appropriate time to celebrate our nurses.
These devoted professionals selflessly provide skillful and compassionate care to all who need it, whether it’s during a home visit, surgery or global pandemic.
Our nurses keep alive a treasured tradition of commitment and caring pioneered by Florence Nightingale 201 years ago. Hartford HealthCare is honored to celebrate and thank them during National Nurses Week May 6–12, throughout 2021, and during HealthCare Heroes Month—a tribute throughout May to the entire Hartford HealthCare team.
