May 6 – 12 is National Nurses Week, an opportunity to celebrate the hard-working and dedicated nurses providing care and support for patients day in and day out.

Nurses are essential to great health care in Hansford County. Our fantastic nurses provide excellent care across a wide range of specialties with compassion and skill for patients at every age and stage of life.

Nurses also spend a significant amount of time educating and supporting every patient and family who trusts Hansford County Hospital District for their care.

“Nurses are the backbone of everything we do for our patients,” said Jonathan Bailey, Hansford County Hospital District CEO. “Our skilled nursing team goes beyond providing great care to support patients and their families throughout their time with us.”

From post-hospitalization recovery to primary care and compassionate long-term care at Hansford Manor, nurses are the foundation of great health care in Hansford County.

National Nurses Week begins each year on May 6 and ends May 12 in recognition of Florence Nightingale’s birthday. If you know a nurse, join us in giving them a special word of appreciation and celebrate the contributions of nurses who provide expert care, support patient safety, and advance the nursing profession. Now is the perfect time to say “thank you” to nurses for the vital role they play.

It has never been a more critical time to consider the role nurses play in our communities. According to the American Hospital Association, nursing workforce numbers are not on track to meet future demand, with more than 600,000 nurses reporting an intent to leave the workforce by 2027.
