Cathy Barnett Named to DFW’s “The Great 100 Nurses”
23 Medical City Healthcare nurses recognized for excellence and compassionate care
Dallas, Texas - Cathy Barnett, RNC, BS, MBA, Medical City North Hills, was one of an impressive group of 23 Medical City Healthcare nurses named to the elite DFW "The Great 100 Nurses" list. The annual celebration event recognizes and raises awareness of the significant contributions from more than 50,000 DFW nurses practicing in patient care, research, leadership, education and community service.
Barnett, a nurse for 42 years, is the Hospitalist Navigator at Medical City North Hills.
More than 850 North Texas nurses were nominated by peers, patients, physicians, and others. Honorees were selected because they are role models, leaders, compassionate caregivers and significant contributors to the nursing profession. They represent all practice areas in nursing including acute care, sub-acute care, school nursing, nurse leaders, academics and more.
"I'm extremely proud that Medical City Healthcare nurses comprise nearly a fourth of this year's honorees," says Chief Nursing Executive Zach Mueller, RN, DNP. "This prestigious recognition honors our nurses' commitment to exceptional, compassionate care for every patient. And, it distinguishes their excellence not only at the bedside, but in the boardroom and within the educational community."
Dedication to an exceptional nursing practice environment is a hallmark of Medical City Healthcare. Seven Medical City Hospitals hold the prestigious Magnet Recognized(R) status from the American Nurses Credentialing Center. The credential is the highest international honor for professional nursing practice.
