Valley Baptist Health System to Honor Inspiring Nurses during National Nurses Week

May 5, 2021

BROWNSVILLE, HARLINGEN & WESLACO – Valley Baptist Health System is proud to honor our nurses during National Nurses Week, May 6-12, an annual celebration that recognizes the critical role nurses perform in our hospitals and for our community.

The theme this year, Exceptional People, Essential Care, commemorates just how indispensable our nurses have been during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We are grateful to all of our nurses and humbled by the hard work they do every day, now more than ever as we continue to manage the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Leslie Bingham, CEO for Valley Baptist Medical Center-Brownsville. “Nursing is one of the most rewarding careers, but also one of the most challenging. This week is about paying tribute to nurses and the daily impact they have on our patients’ lives.”

Nurses at Valley Baptist Health System have many roles – staff nurse, nursing leader, educator, infection preventionist, nurse practitioner and more, and they serve these roles with a passion for the profession and a strong commitment to patient safety.

National Nurses Week is celebrated annually to coincide with the birthday of Florence Nightingale, the founder of modern nursing. Like Nightingale, our nurses have served with passion and dedication, fighting for their patients against a pandemic that has waxed and waned now for some 15 months. Today, as Nightingale did in her time, our nurses represent a profession of advocacy and strength and are respected for their professionalism and devotion to their patients, their families and for each other.

“Valley Baptist Health System recognizes, acknowledges and trusts the strong commitment, compassion, expertise and care our nurses display in their practice and profession,” said Manny Vela, CEO for Valley Baptist Health System and Valley Baptist Medical Center-Harlingen. “Now more than ever, they truly make a difference in the lives of our community.”
