Details for Kaiser Permanente (Nurses Week)

Thank you for all you do
It’s National Nurses Week and I not only want to take the time to thank you for
all that you do, but also tell you and everyone else what you truly mean to us
at Kaiser Permanente.
You are not only leaders, clinicians, researchers, innovators, and scientists, you
are also heroes — heroes with courage, compassion, the ability to perform
under pressure and provide the ultimate calling; true compassionate care.
Kaiser Permanente is honored to have you, and you mean so much to our
organization and to our members. You help us all tell stories. I still recall, at
my most vulnerable moment, when I was lying in a hospital bed, the touch
of my nurse’s hand on my hand. Without needing to say another word, my
nurse gave me comfort, confidence and belief that I was going to recover, and
everything was going to be all right.
My story is no different from others who have had similar experiences. We
receive letters from thousands of our members who write to tell the story of
how you made them feel better, how you gave them hope, how you calmed
their fears and how you just cared for them.
At Kaiser Permanente, you are 59,000 strong, and I am proud you are part of
the Kaiser Permanente family. Your voices and your presence inside the walls
of Kaiser Permanente will never go unnoticed and the value you bring to us
will never be understated.
I want to thank each one of you for living our mission to provide high-quality,
affordable health care services and to improve the health of our members and
the communities we serve, and importantly, giving us the honor of being in
our lives and part of the Kaiser Permanente family.
So, in the week in which the nation recognizes you, I want to express
gratitude, and let you know all of us at Kaiser Permanente celebrate you,
always. Thank you.

Bernard J. Tyson
Chairman and CEO
