A total of 56 nurses across the Memorial Hermann Health System have been recognized as the best in their profession by the Houston Chronicle. All were named to the newspaper’s 2022 Top 150 “Salute to Nurses” list.
“The dedication and commitment of our Memorial Hermann nurses to improving health for all we serve has never been more apparent,” said Dr. David Callender, President and CEO of Memorial Hermann Health System. “During COVID-19, our nurses – our entire healthcare team - continuously delivered safe, compassionate and high-quality care. For these reasons and many more, I am so proud of each of our nurses and our entire Memorial Hermann family.”
Each May during National Nurses Week, the Houston Chronicle honors the role nurses play in delivering care to the Houston community with its annual “Salute to Nurses” list. Hundreds of nurses are nominated by the Houston community. Nominees are then selected by a panel of judges. From the official nominees, 15 outstanding nursing professionals are chosen to be honored as Greater Houston's Top 15 Nurses of the Year.
Four nurses from Memorial Hermann were named to the list of Houston’s Top 15 Nurses of the Year: Ariadne Cabral, RN, with Memorial Hermann Memorial City Medical Center; Jennifer Braren, RN, with Memorial Hermann Northeast Hospital; and Arulkuma Gunasekaran, RN, and Angel Mathai, RN, both with Memorial Hermann Southwest Hospital.
“I would like to congratulate all of the Memorial Hermann nurses recognized on this year’s ‘Salute to Nurses’ list and offer my sincerest gratitude for their unwavering commitment to our patients,” said Bryan Sisk, Senior Vice President and Chief Nursing Executive at Memorial Hermann. “I’m truly thankful for their service and proud to serve alongside each and every one of them.”
