As part of their re-accreditation for excellence in nursing and care, Renown Regional Medical Center and Renown South Meadows nurses took to the streets for Pathway to Excellence.
While our nurses are vested daily in the health and well-being of Renown patients and the community, recently they invested in a healthy role for themselves — in the name of Pathway to Excellence, a designation awarded to healthcare organizations demonstrating dedication to nursing excellence and providing the best care possible.
Ninety four Renown Regional Medical Center and Renown South Meadows Medical Center nurses participated on teams in a 10 mile relay race run — starting at Renown Regional traversing along Kietzke Lane to Vassar Street on to Terminal Way and then Longley Lane, and finally down Double R Boulevard to the finish line at Renown South Meadows.
“We wanted to do this event and incorporate both Renown Regional and Renown South Meadows as a way of uniting,” explains Erin Van Kirk, MSN, RN, Director of Nursing Education, Renown Regional. “We are both acute care services and we are both currently Pathway to Excellence designated.”
Pathway to Excellence was first achieved by Renown Regional and Renown South Meadows in 2012. Currently, they are only two hospitals in Nevada to hold this designation.
Every three years, Renown Regional and Renown South Meadows apply for redesignation.
Watch as our nurses trek the 10 miles between hospitals and hear what they have to say about the importance of the designation for patients and nurse alike.
