Nurses celebrated

Grane Hospice Care is honoring nurses during National Nurses Week — May 6-12.

“We will be distributing 1,000 yard signs to Grane Hospice nurses as well as nurses throughout our coverage area in long-term care facilities, doctor’s offices and acute care hospitals,” said Tommi Burchfield, director of Business Development at Grane Hospice Care. “Once distributed, nurses will take them home and display them in their yards or windows. We want these yard signs to be a reminder to the whole community of the work nurses do every day and a source of recognition and pride for the nurses to display.”

The blue yard signs were produced by Image Signs.

Grane Hospice Care offices at UPMC Altoona, UPMC Bedford Memorial and in Pittsburgh and King of Prussia have joined in community recognition for their nurses.

Grane Hospice Care Altoona provides hospice services and support to the Central Pennsylvania region with nursing care, pain and symptom management, medical equipment and supplies, medication and emotional, financial and spiritual counseling.
