Excellence in nursing at Salem Health

A Message from our Chief Nursing Officer

hornNow, more than ever, the future of health care is defined by continual change. As one of the largest health care professional disciplines, nurses are challenged with the expectation to achieve optimal organizational and patient outcomes through their practice. Our nurses — from bedside caregivers, specialty nurses, and nurse leaders — achieve remarkable empirical outcomes within our Magnet® organization.

Nurses are key to providing equitable care, embracing cultural awareness and sensitivity, and managing individual patient interaction(s). Relationship-centered care requires collaboration from the entire multidisciplinary team, patient, and family/visitor(s) for the most effective coordination of care. The deliberate partnerships we’ve established and nurtured with all members of the health care team is one extraordinary characteristic of our organization. Our Magnet status is owned by our entire organization as our relentless pursuit of clinical excellence and our Magnet redesignation recognition has exemplified.

To achieve this coveted distinction takes steadfast commitment, enormous dedication, visionary leadership, empowered staff, remarkable empirical patient outcomes, tremendous teamwork, interdisciplinary collaboration, and innovation.

As stated by our nursing pioneer Florence Nightingale, “Unless we are making progress in our nursing profession every year, every month, every week, take my word for it we are going back.”

Forging ahead,
Sarah Horn, MBA, BSN, RN, NE-BC, RNC-NIC
Chief Nursing Officer
