Corizon recognizes nurses for National Nursing Week

Corizon recognizes nurses for National Nursing WeekToday begins the week-long celebration of National Nurses Week, led by the American Nurses Association (ANA). At Corizon, we recognize the hard work our nurses do every day and want to take this time to acknowledge and thank them for the care they provide to our patients.

This week was brought about in honor of Florence Nightingale, known to be the founder of modern nursing and remembered for her compassionate service to soldiers during the Crimean War. We want to honor our more than 6,000 nurses who go above and beyond the call of duty every day to provide safe, efficient and compassionate care in another very demanding environment – correctional medicine.

Our dedicated team of nurses, led by Becky Pinney, Chief Nursing Officer, has built a strong leadership team poised to take our Corizon Nurses to the next level of care. This team leads by example and is continuously building our nursing program. With this approach by our nursing leadership, along with our outstanding nurses ‘in the trenches’ who are rising to the challenge, Corizon will continue to lead the way in correctional nursing.

Take time, especially this week, to recognize the vastly important role our nurses play within our organization. And, to all our nurses, please know that we appreciate the care you provide and are grateful to have you as a vital part of the Corizon team!
