For Immediate Release:

14 LifeBridge Health Nurses Named Among Baltimore Magazine’s 2021 “Excellence in Nursing” Honorees

Baltimore, MD - Fourteen LifeBridge Health nurses are among those who will be honored by Baltimore magazine in May for their outstanding contributions to the healthcare field. 

The magazine’s seventh annual “Excellence in Nursing” survey recognizes nurses who go the extra mile for their patients, their colleagues and their communities.

Award candidates may be nominated by a colleague, employer or supervisor, patient, friend or family member. Self-nominations are also accepted. A panel of advisors retained by Baltimore magazine reviews the nominations and helps the magazine decide on winners in each of several categories, including emergency department, orthopedics, pediatrics and medical-surgical nursing. 

LifeBridge Health team members have been featured on every list of Baltimore magazine’s top nursing feature since the “Excellence in Nursing” survey was introduced in 2015. 

Congratulations to our 2021 honorees!
