A Message from our Chief Nursing Officer

As leaders in the care of patients and their families, nurses at Maury Regional Medical Center (MRMC) are actively engaged in improving patient lives and outcomes through evidence-based practice.

Our vision to be recognized as a national leader in quality outcomes, service excellence and patient-centered care reflects our commitment to both the patient/family and the community at large. We take pride in our dedication to nursing excellence and evidence-based practice that is at the core of our organization.

In 2011, MRMC received the Pathway to Excellence designation from the American Nurses Credentialing Center and was redesignated in 2017. This designation demonstrates a commitment to creating an environment where nurses excel and feel valued as integral members of multidisciplinary health care teams.

With an RN retention rate of more than 90%, our nursing skill level is also evolving and advancing. From specialty certifications to advanced degrees, our nurses are enhancing health care in our region.

Our commitment extends beyond the walls of the medical center. Nurses present at national conferences, hold professional association leadership roles and donate their time, talents and resources to those in our community.

I am inspired by the dedication of our nurses to our patients and to each other. I am proud of the opportunity to work among such a talented nursing team.
