PMC Celebrates National Nurses Week

Roger and CandyEighty-one nurses employed at Prowers Medical Center were honored for their service this past Tuesday, May 6, as the hospital is observing May 6-12 as National Nurses Week.

The proclamation, read in part by Lamar Mayor Roger Stagner and PMC Board Chair, Candy Ruedeman, states in part that there are nearly 3.1 million registered nurses in the United States which comprises the nation’s largest health care profession.  It was also noted that the demand for registered nursing services will be greater than ever in the near future due to the aging of the country’s population, the development of new life-sustaining technology and the growth of home health care services.

PMC Chief Clinical Officer, Donna Walker, said the 81 nurses at the hospital are comprised of RNs, LPNs and CNAs, all of whom contribute to the well being of the patients at Prowers Medical Center.  The reading of the proclamation was probably one of the last official acts of Candy Ruedeman as board chairwoman, as she is moving from the Lamar area later this spring.  She and board member Marge Campbell are being replaced by Constance Brase and Matthew Snyder who will be sworn in at the next PMC board meeting on May 28.
