13 Methodist Health System Nurses Named among DFW Great 100 Nurses

Thirteen Methodist Health System nurses were among honorees named in the prestigious Dallas-Fort Worth Great 100 Nurses awards this year, from more than 700 nurses across North Texas nominated for the honor. The awards honor 100 registered nurses who made significant impacts on the nursing profession and for patients, peers, and the community
at large.

This year, the following registered nurses at Methodist were chosen as honorees by the selection committee: Cherie James, from Methodist Charlton; Kathleen Andrews, Abi Mikkel Finberg, Kimberly Green, and Christopher Fowler, from Methodist Dallas; Cynthia Carter, Shelley Cook, Donna Crimmins-Bonnell, Missy Garrison, Teresa Jones, Jay Lavers, Paula McMahan, and Tim Taylor, from Methodist Mansfield. They will be honored at a special gala on April 11 at the Morton H. Myerson Symphony Center in Dallas.

“All of these extraordinary nurses are role models for Methodist and are admired for their leadership and clinical expertise,” Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer Pamela Stoyanoff says. “Their compassion and dedication to serve and care for others makes a difference in so many people’s lives.”

The Great 100 Nurses award has been one of the most prestigious recognitions given to registered nurses in the North Texas area for the past 20 years. Started by Beth Mancini, PhD, RN, CNA, FAAN, who saw a need for Dallas nurses to come together and recognize each other for their heroism and talents, and sponsored by the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex and the Texas Nursing Association, the Great 100 Nurses program is now one of the must-attend events of the year and one of the highest awards given to local nurses.
