Methodist Le Bonheur Healthcare (MLH) recognizes outstanding nurses during the annual Nursing Stars Celebration. The event recognizes the exceptional women and men who define the patient- and family-centered care MLH is committed to providing. This year's celebration was held at the Memphis Hilton.
Nursing Stars are selected from each Methodist Le Bonheur Healthcare facility. From the Nursing Stars, one Nurse of the Year is chosen from each facility, and recognized at the ceremony. Candidates are nominated by their peers based on the following criteria: professionalism, interpersonal relations, community involvement, innovation, patient- and family-centered care, and the science of nursing.
