Medical Staff Nominations for EIC Award
Cedars-Sinai physicians have submitted a record number of nominations for the 2007 Maggie Stempson-Carter Excellence in Caring Award. This year, a total of 36 physicians nominated 31 nurses for this prestigious award.

The annual award is given on behalf of the medical staff to a Cedars-Sinai nurse who exemplifies professionalism, clinical excellence and caring. Originally known as the Excellence in Caring Award, it was renamed in 2005 in honor of the late Maggie Stempson-Carter, RN, who received the award in 2004.

"Thank you to all of the physicians who took the time to go online and nominate a special nurse for this recognition," said Chris Ng, M.D., co-chair of the MD/RN Collaborative Committee.

The award recipient will be selected by the Excellence in Caring Award Medical Staff Selection Committee and will be announced at the Nurses' Week Awards Ceremony on Monday, May 7 from noon to 1:30 p.m. in Harvey Morse Auditorium. In addition to Maggie Stempson-Carter, RN, past recipients include Peachy Hain, RN, and Jean Eskenazi, RN.
