“As I have always said throughout my career as both a bedside caregiver and an administrator, it is simply impossible to overstate the importance of nurses to the delivery and quality of health care, to patient safety, and to positive patient outcomes,” said Steven Hanks, M.D., president and CEO of SPHP and St. Joseph’s Health. “We congratulate the awardees and finalists of the 2024 Times Union Salute to Nurses. And we thank nurses everywhere, especially those throughout St. Peter’s system of care, for all they do, every day. Thank you for who you are, what you do, and for giving so very much to our community.”
