Sherry Benson RN, Named Longview Regional’s 2011 Patient Choice Award Winner

Longview, TX – (May 23, 2011)  When Longview Regional Medical Center asked former patients to nominate exceptional nurses who exceeded expectations, the community took action with an unbelievable number of nominations.

The Patient Choice Award recognizes the quality care, comfort and compassion offered by the nurses at Longview Regional, and honors one nurse in particular. As part of National Nurse's Week, May 6-12, Longview Regional is proud to name Sherry Benson, RN as the 2011 Patient Choice winner.  Sherry is a nurse in the Emergency Department (ER) and was humbled with the surprising news late last week.

Longview Regional Medical Center asks former patients to spotlight an exceptional nurse because patients are the ones directly impacted by outstanding care.  "Sometimes it's just too hard to spot one nurse when there are so many nurses in our hospital doing such an unbelievable job caring for our patients," says Stephanie Foster, Chief Nursing Officer for Longview Regional. "That's why we asked patients to help us make the choice. They see the little things that matter so much on a very personal level. We are honored to spotlight Sherry for her extraordinary care as one of our nursing staff."

Sherry was nominated by several families whom all stated: "she was the best nurse I have ever had.  "She kept my family informed all the way though, letting us know what was being done and why".  "Sherry was so caring and always smiled".   

Sherry will be recognized with a cash prize, an engraved plaque, honored at a special luncheon with the LRMC Administrative staff, Board of Trustee Chairman, along with the families who nominated her and Sherry's supervisor & director.  She will also be featured in a newspaper ad and placed on the 2011 Patient Choice Award Winners poster.
