“My daughter was a patient in early October. Out of all of the nurses and physicians my daughter encountered, Kurney Witham stood out and shone above the rest. Kurney displayed the utmost level of professionalism and compassion of any nurse. She truly embodied the concept of patient-centered care versus goal-centered care. She was compassionate not only toward my daughter, but also toward my newly born granddaughter. She took time to explain things to my daughter and treated her with respect and dignity. My daughter had a very challenging pregnancy toward the end, and the baby had to wait three days to come home. Kurney always made my daughter feel welcome to come see the baby in the nursery and never hesitated to answer any questions she had. I cannot thank Kurney enough for everything she did for my daughter. Mercy Health Muskegon is truly blessed to have her on their team.”
Kurney was honored with a surprise celebration in her department. Her peers, nursing leadership, and the patient’s grandmother and grandbaby also attended. Congratulations, Kurney.
