Northwest Nurses Earn "Panhandle Great 25 Nurses"

Seven Northwest Texas Healthcare System nurses have been chosen for their outstanding service by the Texas Nurses Association "Panhandle Great 25 Nurses" for 2016. The prestigious recognition was determined by the "Panhandle Great 25 Nurses" Review Panel, which evaluated all the nominations that were submitted earlier this year.

The panel did not know the names, titles or employers of any of the nominees, and based their decisions solely by comparing the established criteria with each nominee’s accomplishments in the following areas:

  • Role model
  • Leadership qualities
  • Service to the community
  • Compassionate caregiver
  • Significant contributions

The distinguished awardees are:

  • Susan Cooper Bailey, RN
  • Danneva Patterson, RN
  • Lesley Pierce, RN
  • Kimberly Riddlesburger, RN
  • John Sappington, RN
  • Norma Pina Smith, RN
  • Courtney Terrel, RN

“We are honored to have such outstanding nurses working at Northwest," said Mark Crawford, Chief Executive Officer for Northwest Texas Healthcare System. “These seven nurses exemplify the very best of the nursing profession," said Doug Coffey, Chief Nursing Officer.
