Danvers – Care Dimensions, the largest provider of hospice and palliative care services for adults and children in Massachusetts, celebrates National Nurses Week, May 6 -12 by honoring its 301 nurses, many of whom are board certified in hospice and palliative care.
Local nurses recognized are Sydney Dolat, RN, of Newbury and Jessica Miedionoski, RN, of Rowley; and Acacia R. Mehaffey, RN, and Anastacia Sanderson, RN, of Byfield for their professionalism, leadership, and commitment to excellence in patient care at Care Dimensions.
“We are so proud of our nursing staff and their capacity to go above and beyond, adapt and rise to every challenge while bringing critical expertise and compassion to every patient and family,” said Care Dimensions’ President and CEO Patricia Ahern, RN, MBA, FACHE, a 44-year veteran in the field of nursing. “More importantly, their dedication has never wavered during our response to the COVID pandemic. Our nurses are gifted with the ability to discern the worry and apprehension that folks can’t quite get into words when they have been feeling as vulnerable and isolated as they have in this last year. Their strong communications skills help guide families through life’s most difficult moments.”
