Dallas, TX - An outstanding group of 25 Medical City Healthcare nurses has been named to the 2023 DFW “Great 100 Nurses” and the D Magazine Excellence in Nursing Awards. These elite honors recognize nurses for excellence and their skills in the science of nursing across all disciplines including patient care, academics, education, community service, research and leadership roles.
