“A hero is someone who, in spite of weakness, doubt or not always knowing the answers, goes ahead and overcomes anyway” – Christopher Reeve

May is a big month for all of us at South Florida Hospital News & Healthcare Report. Not only will we celebrate Mother’s Day AND the 24th Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce Health Care Heroes®, but we also observe National Nurses Week.  Where would we be without all of the nurses in this multi-faceted profession, the unsung heroes of healthcare? Whether we depend upon them in our professional lives or, quite literally, place our lives in their hands when we fall ill, nurses are truly the glue in the healthcare puzzle. And although their profession has changed radically and is constantly evolving, can any of us imagine a healthcare facility without nurses?

Just since the New Year, we’ve all been witness to more than enough villains and terrible occurrences, so I hope everyone takes a little time to read about and honor the individuals noted within our pages.

 Congratulations and thank you to our Health Care Heroes and Nurses. This one’s for you!
