Friends of Nursing Award
The November 2016 Friends of Nursing Award winner is Charles Winslow, MD, Neonatologist and Program Lead for Muskegon’s Special Care Nursery Services. Dr. Winslow was nominated by Deb Perry-Philo, RN, Director of Women’s & Children’s Services.
Deb writes: “Dr. Winslow’s engagement in, and dedication to, the development of this service has went above and beyond whatever would have been imagined. Following the delivery of a critical infant from a critically-ill mom (who ended up in the ICU and later passed), Dr. Winslow regularly visited the mom’s ICU room, sitting with her and giving her updates on the baby. The extent of awareness this mom had of these conversations is unknown but this compassion was appreciated and meaningful to us and the patient’s family. Dr. Winslow also took (secure) pictures of the baby, who had been transferred to Saint Mary’s in Grand Rapids, to bring back and show the family as they could not easily get to Grand Rapids with a critically-ill family member in Muskegon. This is but one example of the care, compassion and dedication Dr. Winslow has exemplified.”
Dr. Winslow was honored with a surprise celebration on North 2 at Hackley amongst his nursing peers. To nominate a well-deserving colleague, please complete the Friends of Nursing nomination form located on the Mercy Health Muskegon intranet.
