Rachel joined the hospital in June 2017 and has been garnering praise for her compassion and bedside manner ever since. The leadership team has received multiple compliments about Rachel, referred to by one patient as “our angel nurse”. She is a Daisy Award recipient, an honor given to nurses for the extraordinary work they do for patients and families. Rachel has also been a guiding light for her team members. Anyone can go to her with a problem and she will assist them. If a team member needs help, she is the first one to offer it.
