SRMC earns Hallmarks of Healthy Workplaces award

Southeastern Regional Medical Center (SRMC) has been named a recipient of the North Carolina Nurses Association’s Hallmarks of Healthy Workplaces Award, which recognizes and promotes healthy, positive workplaces for nurses within North Carolina. SRMC is one of 13 workplaces in NC that will be presented with the award at a ceremony in Concord on May 17.

"Nurses at SRMC are committed to excellence in patient care and the profession of nursing,” said Teresa Barnes, vice president of acute clinical services for Southeastern Health, SRMC’s parent organization.  “It is this commitment to providing our community with high-quality care that has assisted in obtaining this distinction."

Criteria for the award includes having three or more full-time registered nurses on staff, completion of a nurse satisfaction survey, written application, and site visit.

Created in 2006, the award not only recognizes workplaces in North Carolina that are especially supportive of nurses, but also aids health care providers in creating workplaces where communication flows freely and nurses contribute actively to the management of the organization.
