Nurse of the Year

At The Medical Center at Scottsville, we value our nursing staff and want to celebrate, honor, and recognize our outstanding nurses. To that end, the Recruitment, Retention and Recognition Council created the Nurse of the Year recognition.

Nominees go before a selection committee prior to being voted on by nursing staff. The selection committee evaluates each nurse’s demonstrated leadership, excellence in customer service, community involvement and commitment to the nursing profession.

2011 Nurse of the Year

Ronda Allen, RN
Acute Care

Ronda has been with Commonwealth Health Corporation for 22 years. Her advice for others entering the nursing profession is to try to imagine yourself in the same situation as your patients. "Nursing does not just consist of being knowledgeable and skillful, but also being empathetic and sympathetic." Ronda says her co-workers are amazing and mean so much to her. "We are just one big family."
