Independence Blue Cross kicks off National Nurses Week, May 6-12, with the announcement of our 2020 Celebrate Caring winners and honorees. Celebrate Caring recognizes outstanding nurses in the Greater Philadelphia region. The nurses being recognized were chosen from over 1,100 nominations submitted by co-workers, patients, family, friends, and neighbors. The winners and honorees represent a variety of health care settings across the region.
Winners can designate a $2,500 donation to a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that is meaningful to them. Their stories will be featured by Independence and its media partners, 6abc and iHeartRadio. Independence has also coordinated with the nurses' employers and nominators to surprise them with the news. They will receive prizes that include gift cards, food deliveries, and commemorative plaques.
In addition to celebrating the five winners featured below, Independence will also recognize several honorees. Stay tuned for photos and profiles featured here and on social media. For a full list of winners and honorees,
