Seven WFUBMC Nurses Recognized in “Great 100”

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. – Seven nurses at Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center have been named to the 2009 “Great 100” list in North Carolina that recognizes some of those providing excellent health care.

The Great 100 Inc. is a grassroots organization that allows nurses across the state the opportunity to nominate their peers who demonstrate excellent nursing care of their patients and also a commitment to their vital profession. Recipients are recognized for their outstanding professional ability and for the contributions they make to improve the health care services in their community.

"It is always an honor to have nurses from our staff inducted into this prestigious group of nurses from across North Carolina,” said Maureen Sintich, R.N., vice president of operations and chief nursing officer at Wake Forest Baptist.

The nurses from Wake Forest Baptist are: Anita Dixon, B.S.N., R.N., child psychiatry at Brenner Children’s Hospital; Vera Eckard, B.S.N., R.N., nurse supervisor for radiation oncology; Carolyn Fulton, R.N., acute care elderly; Robin Hack, M.S.N., R.N., nursing clinical systems; Phyllis D. Knight-Brown, M.S.N., R.N., staff development; Adrianna Sloan, B.S.N., R.N., 4B ICU; Lyn Wooten, M.S.N., R.N., surgery oncology coordinator.

The Wake Forest Baptist recipients will be recognized at a gala event on Saturday, Oct. 3 at the Greensboro Coliseum.

The Great 100 Inc. was formed in 1988 when Heather Thorne, R.N., called together a group of nurses from across the state to develop a plan to select and recognize the best of their profession. The organization also raises funds for nursing scholarship, awarding more than $140,000 to help others pursue a nursing career.
