May 28, 2020
It is with great honor and delight to share that Stanford Health Care was once again recognized for innovation, quality patient care, and clinical research by Becker’s Hospital Review list of ‘100 Great Hospitals in America for 2020. We were also highlighted for our patient satisfaction scores and our hospital management team. It is because of your commitment to excellence and exemplary patient care that we received this honor. Congratulations to all of you on this outstanding accomplishment.
|Now that we are approaching the end of May 2020, it is graduation season – making it a great time to look back and reflect on how we have grown, and to celebrate those who are embarking on a new chapter in their lives. During this exhilarating season of commencement ceremonies, I would like to congratulate every graduate, especially all of our transformational graduates from Stanford Health Care. Throughout this challenging time of social distancing, many had to miss their personal graduation ceremonies. I would like to offer all of the graduates recognition for your commitment to your profession and your community. The Institute of Medicine and Joint Commission, in conjunction with additional authorities, has called on nurses and other healthcare professionals to be leaders and to advance our health care systems and the practice environment. I firmly believe that all of these graduates will bring significant changes to our healthcare system.|
|A couple of weeks ago, I was invited to and had the privilege to virtually attend a surprise commencement ceremony for Kelly Straight, (DNP candidate from the University of San Francisco) organized by her C2 work family. I’d like to extend heartfelt congratulations to Kelly and the rest of this season’s graduates for their dedication to exemplary professional excellence, contributions to the professional nursing practice, and their commitment to continued learning. I know all of you new graduates will change and inspire many lives, so together, let’s celebrate your achievement!!!|
Thank you to the graduates of 2020 for participating in our survey and allowing us to celebrate your achievement!
|Again, congratulations to Stanford Health Care and all our graduates!|
|With respect and admiration,|
