Parthenon Helps HCA Celebrate Nurses Week

Parthenon is pleased to play a role in helping HCA celebrate Nurses Week (May 6-12, 2016). We do so each year by dedicating an issue of a publication we produce for them to honoring nurses through profiles.

Our publication, Clinical Excellence @HCA, is for clinical professionals and is distributed to all of the company’s 165 hospitals. In it, we discuss new initiatives to improve care, share best practices and celebrate clinical staff achievements.

The Spring issue comes out just before National Nurses Week, and is dedicated to honoring those members of HCA’s clinical staff who are essential to delivering on the company’s mission to provide high quality care.

The publication has columns from leadership explaining the critical and growing role nurses play in the organization and how HCA is committed to creating an environment where nurses can launch and build a career. Those messages are reinforced with profiles of nurses who have made an impact on their hospitals, their patients and their colleagues, thanks to multiple opportunities for continuing education, advancement and career growth at HCA.

Nurse profilesThe Nurses Week issue of Clinical Excellence @HCA features 12 nurses who work in various parts of the organization, including med-surg, pediatrics, emergency and behavioral health.

While many health care systems purchase newspaper ads during Nurses Week to “salute nurses,” HCA goes a step further to tell their stories, honor them and demonstrate that the company wants them to stay and thrive.
