02042015mch-69This year, we celebrate Nurses Week from May 6 – May 12.  Milwaukee Catholic Home is proud to honor its exceptional nursing staff, who have made the organization’s 100 years of service to the community possible.  Going beyond excellent clinical care, our nurses embody the words of our vision statement, “a call to do more.”   From ground breaking restorative care and strength and balance programming to a compassionate emphasis on each resident’s individual needs, Milwaukee Catholic Home nurses do more every day.

This year, we are proud to announce that MCH nurse Bridget Zuehlke has been named Nurse of the Year First Runner Up.  Bridget has served at Milwaukee Catholic Home since 1998.  Her long tenure is not unusual at MCH – many of our nurses have worked with us for over a decade.

“The longevity of our staff shows that Milwaukee Catholic Home is a great place to work.  Residents and families comment all the time that our nursing staff takes the time to get to know them throughout the time they make MCH their home,” said Joan Quirk, MCH Director of Nursing.  “In addition to nurses that have been with us for years, we also welcome new nursing graduates.  We benefit from their energy and enthusiasm and they are able to learn and grow with the support of our experienced staff.”

Congratulations and thank you, nurses!
