Cone Health Honors Top Nurses and Nursing Support Staff


Cone Health honors 34 individuals with its annual Nursing Excellence awards. They represent the top 1 percent of nurses and nursing support staff at Cone Health.

The recipients were selected by their peers and are recognized for the exceptional care they provide patients, as well as for their leadership abilities. All of the individuals provide care to patients or support those who do.

“Our communities are fortunate to have so many talented, dedicated individuals caring for our patients,” says Cone Health Chief Nursing Officer Theresa Brodrick, RN, PhD. “The values they show, the leadership they demonstrate, the professionalism they exhibit are part of what makes Cone Health a special place for care.”
