At Shawnee Mission Medical Center (SMMC), we pride ourselves on providing a nursing environment where innovative thinking is encouraged and rewarded.The Annual Report is one way SMMC can highlight and thank all our nurses for their hard work and dedication. Our 2011 Nursing Annual Report report, highlights our dedication to improvement and quality. Many times, we may have a satisfactory way of doing things that has served us well, but there may be a better way. A strong team knows that change can be challenging, but that even a small improvement in the level of care we can provide makes it worthwhile to pursue new ideas.
The theme of National Nurses Week 2011 is trusted to care. Because we are trusted to care, we are dedicated to strengthening our ability to work as a team.
