Eight area nurses are among 26 nurses from Cone Health who have been named to this year’s list of Great 100 nurses. Six of the award recipients are employed at Alamance Regional Medical Center and two are Alamance County residents who work at other Cone Health locations. The Great 100 Inc. is a grassroots peer recognition organization honoring the nursing profession in North Carolina by recognizing nursing excellence and providing scholarships for nursing education.
Twenty-six award recipients is the largest number of nurses from a single health system in the history of the Great 100 program. In addition, this year is the 25th anniversary of the North Carolina Great 100.
"It is especially significant that this is an all-time high for the number of Cone Health nurses being recognized," says Cone Health Executive Vice President and Chief Nursing Officer Theresa Brodrick, RN, Ph.D. "This is a wonderful recognition for our nurses who always demonstrate our Cone Health values of Caring for Our Patients, Caring for Each Other and Caring for Our Communities."

Cone Memorial Hospital; Jessie Danley, Alamance Regional Medical Center; Catherine Gaither, Alamance Regional Medical Center; Darlene Hicks, Alamance Regional Medical Center; Vivian Johnson, Alamance Regional Medical Center; Sheena Lambert, Alamance Regional Medical Center; and Helen Lee, Cone Health Cancer Center.
