Nurses earn March of Dimes awards
Two of Bartlett Regional Hospital’s newest nurses received recognition at the state March of Dimes Nurse of the Year awards in Anchorage in November.
Registered nurses Sarah Roemeling and Claire Geldhof both received awards and a total of 11 Bartlett nurses were nominated.
Roemeling was given the Women’s Health award and Geldhof the Case Management and Managed Care award.
“I am the nurse that I am because of the people who taught me,” Roemeling said in a press release. “I feel really lucky to support women in their role as they become mothers and learn what their bodies are capable of.”
Bartlett Chief Nursing Officer Rose Lawhorne said in a statement both women had shown high degrees of professionalism and dedication to their roles.
“I accept this award on behalf of our amazing team, and the collaboration between our hospital, community, and state,” Geldhof said in the release. “Nursing inspires and motivates me to help people, and for that I am grateful.”
At total of 18 nurses were given awards from a pool of 200 nominations. This was the 15th year of the annual event.
