We would also like to congratulate GFH’s Belinda Spinner RN for being ‘Saluted’ as one of the top Capital Region Nurses from the Times Union’s 8th Annual celebration. Belinda goes above and beyond and provides extraordinary care and compassion to our patients and families every day. Honorees were selected by a regional panel of nurses and health care experts.
Belinda was nominated for her exemplary “Shine on Lantern” project. The project provides memorial lanterns to the families of patients that died from COVID at GFH.
“Glens Falls Hospital is extraordinarily proud of all of our nurses,” said Donna Kirker, MS, RN, NEW-BC, Vice President Patient Services and Chief Nursing Officer. “The nurses honored this year exemplify what patient care at GFH is all about. Giving exceptional care every day, for every patient and family is something we always strive for.”
