Celebrate Caring recognizes outstanding nurses in the region

Independence Blue Cross recently announced three winners and seven finalists for its first‑ever Celebrate Caring campaign to honor nurses who go above and beyond to deliver exceptional care to patients and families.

Celebrate Caring generated an outpouring of love, respect and admiration for nurses in our region. Winners were selected from nearly 700 nominations and over 180 different health care settings. Independence traveled to the winners’ workplaces during National Nurses Week to surprise them with the award in front of family and coworkers.

Independence asked each winner to select a charity to receive a $1,500 donation on their behalf. A prize pack including gift cards, event tickets, and passes for Blue Cross RiverRink Summerfest were presented to the winners at each Nurses Week event. As a thank you to all the nurses on the winners’ units, Independence also provided food and on‑site chair massages during their shift.

The winners and finalists will be profiled and honored at a special awards ceremony at Independence LIVE in June.
