The Palm Healthcare Foundation hosted its second annual Heart of Gold nursing reception on May 15 to honor the work of local nurses and recognize the Palm Beach County’s nurses of the year, including Sarah Minchin of Wellington.
The event was a culmination of the six-week Thank A Nurse campaign that asked residents to show appreciation by sharing stories of outstanding nurses in the community.
More than 200 guests attended the celebration at the Kravis Center.
Michele Wright of CBS 12 News served as mistress of ceremonies and helped introduce speakers Andrea Bradley, president and CEO of the Palm Healthcare Foundation; Dr. Julie Hilsenbeck, regional vice president of Tenet Health; and Gayle Stevens, RN, from Vitas Healthcare.
Wright also introduced the 15 nurses recognized as Palm Beach County’s nurses of the year, including Minchin.
Minchin is a staff nurse in the recovery room at Wellington Regional Medical Center. She is certified in peri anesthesia nursing. Her knowledge and refined clinical skills contribute directly to the positive changes at Wellington Regional Medical Center and in the community.
