St. John's Episcopal Hospital Celebrates Nurses Week
St. John's Episcopal Hospital celebrated National Nurses Week, which falls on Florence Nightingale's birthday, May 6, 2009, through May 13, 2009. Nurses at the Hospital began the week with a "blessing of the hands" ceremony hosted by the Pastoral Care Department on Wednesday, May 6, 2009, in the Lobby. Pre-kindergarten, first-grade and second-grade students from PS 43 drew pictures of nurses to commemorate the week and thank the Hospital's nurses for their dedication to their vocation. The Hospital displayed the hand-drawn pictures in the lobby.
