Medical Center Looking For Patients’ Choice In Nursing


Payson Regional Medical Center is once again seeking to honor one of its nurses with the Patient Choice Award, which recognizes the quality care, comfort and compassion demonstrated in his or her daily work.

Continuing the tradition of the last few years, the hospital is asking for input from the community, and one nurse chosen from the nominations will receive the Patient Choice Award at Payson Regional Medical Center during Nurses’ Week, May 6 through May 12.

Payson Regional Medical Center asks former patients and family members to be involved in spotlighting an exceptional nurse because patients are the ones directly impacted by outstanding care.

“Sometimes it’s just too hard to spot one nurse when there are so many nurses in our hospital doing such an incredible job caring for our patients,” says PRMC Chief Nursing Officer Hart Hintze.

“That’s why we are asking patients to help us make the choice. They see the little things that matter so much on a very personal level.”

If you or a family member have come to Payson Regional Medical Center for inpatient, outpatient or emergency care in the last year and you have a nurse you’d like to thank for going the extra mile, don’t miss this chance. Nominations for the 2009 Patient Choice Award will be accepted until April 29.

To nominate a nurse, send the nurse’s name and a few paragraphs explaining your nomination, along with your own name (and the name of the patient) address and phone number.

E-mail, mail or fax your nomination by April 29. E-mail nominations to or mail to: Cory Houghton, marketing director, Payson Regional Medical Center, 807 S. Ponderosa St., Payson, AZ 85541, or fax to: 928-472-1295.
