In conjunction with National Nurses Week, 20 Memorial Hermann Nurses honored among Houston’s Top Nurses of the Year

A total of 20 nurses across Memorial Hermann earned recognition among the best in their profession in the region, including Melissa Evans, RN, at Children’s Memorial Hermann Hospital, who was named one of Houston’s Top 10 Nurses of the Year by the Houston Chronicle. Additionally, 19 other Memorial Hermann nurses across the System were named to the Chronicle’s overall Top 150 “Salute to Nurses” 2017 list.

Each May during National Nurses Week – which aligns with the birthday week of Florence Nightingale, the founder of modern nursing – 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 and nominees are then selected by a panel. From the official nominees, ten outstanding nursing professionals are chosen to be honored as greater Houston’s Top 10 Nurses of the Year.

Evans joined Children’s Memorial Hermann Hospital in 2013 as a nurse in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU). As an empathetic caregiver, Evans consistently goes above and beyond in treating her patients and their families with the utmost care during the most difficult times.
