Suburban Hospital's commitment to Supporting Caregivers is based on the recognition that health care is ultimately about people taking care of people – a bedrock principle that sets the standard to ensure that our facility is always staffed with the most highly qualified and compassionate caregivers. Over the past year, generous funding not only provided significant opportunities for continuing medical education and individual scholarships, but also allowed the hospital to better embrace the philosophy of Patient and Family Centered Care and support the timehonored tradition of nursing. A newly established structure of nursing practice councils has effectively elevated the level of professional excellence, reinforced the dedication to superior patient care, and assured shared decision making in the application of evidence-based best practices. Nurses are guided by an innovative nursing practice model founded on six core concepts – putting patients first, education, respect, collaboration, compassion, and assuring a professional practice environment.

In recognition of National Doctors' Day, Suburban also welcomed contributions from a record number of community members honoring nearly 330 physicians. These gifts help provide the tools the physicians need to continue making a difference in the community.
