Nurse Excellence Award Winners

For the past 27 years, Eastern Maine Medical Center has proudly recognized its exceptional nursing staff by awarding one nurse the annual Nurse Excellence Award. The award is a public commendation given to a staff nurse who demonstrates clinical excellence, commitment to EMMC, and continued professional development. More important to the honoree, however, is that this special recognition is from their peers.

Please join us in congratulating EMMC's Nurse Excellence Award winners!
