2008 Maggie Stempson-Carter Award to Be Presented May 9

The 2008 Maggie Stempson-Carter Excellence in Caring Award will be presented to a very special Cedars-Sinai nurse on May 9 at the Nurses Week awards ceremony. The awards presentation will be held in Harvey Morse Auditorium from noon to 1:30 p.m.

"We received over 20 nominations for outstanding candidates," said Chris Ng, M.D., co-chair of the MD/RN Collaborative. "We would like to thank the medical staff for recognizing our nursing colleagues and invite staff members to join us at the awards ceremony."

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, R.N., who received the award in 2004. Other award recipients include Peachy Hain, R.N., Jean Eskenazi, R.N., and Bernice Coleman, Ph.D., ACNP.

This year's award recipient was selected by the Excellence in Caring Award Medical Staff Selection Committee.
