ST. JOHNS, Michigan — Sparrow Clinton Hospital celebrated Nurses’ Week with special recognition of the hospital’s 2019 Nurse of the Year.
Marcy Snyder, MSN, RN, CCRN-P, earned Nurse of the Year honors for her warmth, sincerity, and compassionate advocacy on behalf of her Patients and fellow Nurses. A tenured nurse at Sparrow with more than 30 years of experience, she began her career at Sparrow Clinton Hospital in October 2015 as an Infusion/Cancer Center Nurse.
“I am humbled and honored to be named Nurse of the Year,” Snyder said. “I love that Caregivers all know each other at Sparrow Clinton and are able to connect with our Patients as people. Everyone works together to put the Patient first, and in return, those Patients share their challenges as well as their hopes and dreams with us.”
As a nurse leader, Snyder currently chairs the Nursing Quality and Education Council, previously chaired the Infusion/Cancer Center UBC, and worked on the planning committee for the 2019 State of Nursing celebration. She is an active CPR instructor for the Hospital and participates in the subcommittee for Nursing certification and the competency skills fair.
Snyder and her Nursing peers actively participated in Sparrow Clinton’s prestigious Pathway to Excellence recertification process. She also volunteers with the Clinton County MSU Extension Work of Heart program and is a strong advocate of Advance Care planning, using the 5 Wishes goals.
“Nurses protect, promote, and improve quality of care for our Patients,” said Beth Daugherty, SCH Vice President of Patient Care Services and Chief Nursing Officer. “Marcy Snyder, and all our Nurses at Sparrow Clinton, exemplify the very best standards of advocacy, dedication, resourcefulness, and excellence.”
Sparrow Clinton also recognized 2019 Nurse of the Year nominees Lisa Cook, RN, 2-West Inpatient; Natalie Longoria, RN, SMG St. Johns; Amber Piper, RN, 2-West Inpatient; and Kari Simon, RN, SMG St. Johns.
