Nurses of Distinction Named at Northern Westchester Hospital

by Gretchen Mullin

Northern Westchester Hospital (NWH) is proud to announce the recipients of the annual Janet Harrower Nurse of Distinction Awards. The awards recognize three exemplary nurses who have been selected by their nursing peers and physician colleagues to receive this distinguished honor. These nurses represent the culture of caring, compassion and competence that makes NWH a leader in nursing excellence. The award is named after Janet Harrower, who was a Nurse Leader at Northern Westchester Hospital, and demonstrated these qualities every day. In her memory, the Nurse of Distinction Awards recognize these same qualities in three categories: an Experienced Nurse, an Up-and-Coming Nurse, and a Physician-Nominated Nurse.

Elizabeth Galloway was the recipient of the Experienced Nurse, Nurse of Distinction award. A Registered Nurse III working in Ambulatory Surgery, she has been part of the Northern Westchester Hospital Family since 1991 and resides in Brewster, NY.

Northern Westchester Hospital has received Magnet® Recognition for excellence in nursing and the overall quality of care provided to patients and the community. NWH is the only Designated Planetree Hospital with Distinction that has achieved Magnet Recognition in the nation! The Magnet Program is recognized as the gold standard of nursing excellence. Currently, less than 400 of the more than 6,000 U.S. healthcare organizations have received this credential.
