Beaumont Health Celebrates Nursing at Annual Awards Event

Friday, August 19, 2022

Beaumont, Trenton Emergency Center Team

Beaumont Health celebrated the profound impact our nursing teams and support staff have on patients, families and communities with its 3rd annual Nursing Excellence Awards.

“Congratulations to our winners and to all of our exceptional nursing team members from across the system,” said Anne Stewart, RN, interim chief nursing officer for Beaumont Health. “We received more than 550 nominations this year, which is a testament that the work our Beaumont nursing team does every day makes a difference.”

From each sites’ nominees, one site finalist was awarded in 14 categories.

All award winners and site finalists were announced Aug. 18 and honored with a virtual celebration, live-streamed for family members and friends to tune in and cheer on the incredible nurses and direct nursing support staff.

Bill Sweet, RN, and his team was recognized with the Nursing Team Award. He still gets choked up when he talks about the “thank you” sign they received from the son of a 2020 heart attack patient whose life was saved, due in large part, to their efforts.

“At 7-years-old, this boy was a phonetic speller,” said Sweet, director for the Emergency Center nursing team at Beaumont Hospital, Trenton. “His youth and vulnerabilities are all right there. And, so is his heart. He made time to tell us how much his father and our efforts meant to him. On difficult days, it’s a special reminder of why we do what we do.”

Gilly Anderson, RN, chief nursing officer, Beaumont, Trenton, added, “Bill doesn’t just talk about servant leadership, he rolls up his sleeves. No meeting is too important to keep him off the floor if his team needs him.”
