Recipient of the SMH Award of Excellence in Nursing

We are thrilled to announce the 2022 recipient of the SMH Award of Excellence in Nursing.

Congratulations to Melissa LaChance, RN, HAU!

Here is a sample from Melissa’s nomination sent in by a former patient:

“Melissa went far beyond and above any of the fine nurses who looked after me.  She seemed to make me feel special, not just a patient.  The care I received was outstanding at SMH. Since then I have been to Emergency several times and have seen Melissa many times as she came up to ask me if I needed anything, cheered me up and made me feel special. I felt like her family. Her caring and compassion go way beyond. Definitely a nurse with her finger on the pulse.”
