An annual program that recognizes and rewards exemplary nursing units at HCA Healthcare facilities has honored Frankfort Regional Medical Center’s surgical services unit the 2018 Unit of Distinction award.
Approximately 1,200 HCA Healthcare nursing units participated in the program, which were evaluated and scored based on performance specific criteria. Recipients of the honor are considered to be in the top 5 percent of all HCA Healthcare medical-surgical, critical care, emergency services and surgical services nursing units.
An important component of the program is the sponsorship of nurses to obtain national certification through programs accredited by the American Board of Nursing Specialties. This year, more than 2,600 HCA Healthcare-affiliated nurses expanded their professional knowledge and advanced their individual and professional skills to earn certification.
