Thirteen LifeBridge Health Nurses Named Among Baltimore Magazine’s 2022 “Excellence in Nursing” Honorees

Baltimore, Md. - Thirteen LifeBridge Health nurses will be honored by Baltimore magazine this May for their outstanding contributions to the healthcare field. The nurses, among just 100 chosen, come from several facilities in the LifeBridge Health system, including Grace Medical Center and Carroll, Northwest and Sinai hospitals.

The magazine’s eighth annual “Excellence in Nursing” survey recognizes nurses who go the extra mile for their patients, colleagues and 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 nurse advisors retained by Baltimore magazine reviews the nominations and helps the magazine decide on winners in each of several categories, including emergency medicine, orthopedics, pediatrics, and medical-surgical nursing.

LifeBridge Health team members have been featured on every list of Baltimore magazine’s top nurses since the “Excellence in Nursing” survey began in 2015. Congratulations to the 2022 honorees!
