Each and every day nurses throughout Frederick Regional Health System have
the unique opportunity to affect the lives of the patients they care for
in real and meaningful ways. The role that nurses play is critical in
the delivery of excellent care for our patients and their families. How
nurses communicate and collaborate professionally with physicians and
other departments both internal and external to FRHS lays the foundation
for creating a
patient and family centered care environment. Our nurses are innovative, skilled professionals who drive evidence-based
practice and quality patient care outcomes across our entire system.
As FRHS continues to expand and innovate with new medical disciplines,
advanced surgical capabilities, and state-of-the-art technology, our nurses
will remain central to our mission and vision. As the landscape of healthcare
continues to evolve with an elevated focus on population health, nurses
will remain an invaluable driving force behind the superb quality care
provided to our community.
I pledge to our patients that our nurses will consistently strive to deliver
excellent care that is second to none. We consider it a privilege to care
for you and your family, and an honor to be called a nurse.
