Happy Nurses Week! 

Dear Colleagues,

This year, the American Nurses Association’s theme for National Nurses Week is “Nurses Make the Difference”. The spirit of the theme is to honor the varying roles of nurses and their positive impact on the lives of so many. As we celebrate Nurses Week, I thank each of you not only for the difference you make to our patients and families but also for your commitment to co-workers and the community we serve.

Thank you for living the Oneida Health mission and values with your words and actions. You are the foundation and core of the care we provide. I am humbled and grateful to serve as your nurse leader. Thank you for Making the Difference. Happy Nurses Week!

In Gratitude,

Rhonda Reader
