Our outstanding nurses and the care they provide help make Houston Methodist Hospital one of the nation's leading health care providers. Through our I CARE values, our nurses create a positive, uniquely Houston Methodist experience for each of our patients and their families. — Marc L. BooM, M.D. President and cEo, Houston Methodist Hospital I have seen our nursing staff do some amazing things: quickly jump into action to save a life, rock a newborn baby to sleep, or spend hours at a critical patient's bedside. I've even experienced their brilliance first- hand when my son was a patient. The role of a nurse may be varied, but the difference they make in the lives of our patients and families is immeasurable. — craig corDoLa cEo, Memorial Hermann-Texas Medical center Nurses play a crucial and integral role in overall patient experience and outcomes, especially in cancer care where patient anxiety is often high and interactions during treatment often occur over many months.
