Eight Premier Orthopaedics Nurses Win Main Line Today ‘Excellence in Nursing’ Awards

04 May 2021

Premier Orthopaedics is proud to be counted among healthcare providers in the Greater Philadelphia region for excellence in nursing.

Earlier this year, in recognition of nurses’ dedication to their patients and communities, Main Line Today magazine launched voting for its first-ever Excellence in Nursing awards. Fittingly, the publication chose to announce winners the first week of May, which falls within the annual national Nurses Week observance.

Main Line Today followed a nomination protocol similar to its Top Doctor feature: only nurses registered in Pennsylvania could vote, and nominees must work in Delaware, Chester or Montgomery counties.

Although Premier is known as a large group of physicians, physical therapists and MRI technologists that provides expert care for orthopaedic issues, many may not be aware that a small group of dedicated nurses round out the organization’s clinical staff. Eight of these individuals were recognized for their skill and compassionate approach to patient care: StacyLynne Bolks, MSN, FNP-BC, RNFA; Carole Harding-Stewart, R.N.; Sarah Kauffman, CRNP; Linda Kelly, BSN; Christina Kosich, R.N., MSN, CRNP-BC; Susan Meyers, LPN; Chelsea Ross, MSN, CRNP; and Mary Beth Tyson, R.N.

“We are proud to add these outstanding individuals to Premier’s growing list of awardees,” says Matthew O’Malley, CEO of Premier Orthopaedics. “Our physicians have dominated Main Line Today’s Top Doctors list the last few years, so it’s just as satisfying to see eight members of our nursing staff earn a similarly prestigious professional achievement. Nurses truly are everyday heroes, but over the last year they’ve worked through incredibly challenging situations. So, in addition to congratulating our awardees here at home, I’d like to thank all nurses for their unwavering courage and determination.”

The full listing of Excellence in Nursing award winners is available on the magazine’s website.
