Oncology Nurses recognized with Nursing Excellence Award
The annual Daniel Johnson Memorial Education Fund Awards will be given to two Registered Nurses in the Oncology Program for their exemplary and compassionate care.
Date: Thursday, December 5, 2019
Location: Met Campus - Windsor Regional Hospital, 1995 Lens Avenue (First Floor Lobby )
An Endowment Fund began with an initial donation after Daniel Johnson Jr. passed away as a result of cancer. The Johnson Family established the fund in memory of Daniel, who was an Essex County resident, operating his family's business with his brother. Daniel contacted bladder cancer at 50 years of age, resulting in a month-long stay on the Oncology Unit prior to his passing.
The Endowment Fund provides WRH Nursing Staff an opportunity to obtain advanced education through courses and conferences, improving their scope of care in areas that include pain management, palliative care, and compassion.
Two Oncology nurses will be recognized at this year's Annual Daniel Johnson Nursing Excellence Award:
- Sarah Benninger (RN)
- Alexandria (Alex) Parent (RN)
