Adjuah Williams RN, an Upstate nurse specializing in orthopedics, will receive the “Nurse of the Year” award Oct. 30 from the Bankers Healthcare Group and Business Journal. The honor is part of the 2012 Excellence in Health Care Awards, which will be presented at an awards reception at the Oncenter Syracuse. Winners will also be featured in the Central New York Business Journal.
Williams says she loves interacting with patients. “Even when I have a difficult patient, once I find out what makes them most comfortable and satisfied, even if just for a short while, I feel rewarded that I was able to meet their needs.”
A group of Williams’ coworkers from Upstate University Hospital’s Coronary Care Unit will also receive “Nurse of the Year” honors in recognition of the ‘Strong Women, Strong Hearts” event they helped coordinate. Read more about that here.
