CHRISTUS St. Catherine Hospital is proud to announce that Katie Cross, MSN and Barbara Lazor, BSN, MBA were honored at the 21st annual Nursing Celebration ceremony on Thursday, November 10th as an Outstanding Nurse in 2011. The annual Nursing Celebration ceremony recognizes Houston area’s 20 Outstanding Nurses.
The annual Nursing Celebration is nurses celebrating nursing. Since 1991, District 9 has paused to annually recognize 20 outstanding nurses from nine Houston area counties and to award nursing scholarships and research grants. More than 300 nurses have been recognized and more than $40,000 in scholarships and grants have been awarded. In 2009, the Texas Nurses District 9 Foundation was created in hopes that the non-profit status will expand the current scholarship and grant program.
“Nurses are essential in ensuring our patients receive the best care possible at CHRISTUS St. Catherine Hospital,” says Jack McCabe, Chief Executive Officer for Christus St. Catherine Hospital. “Oh behalf of the Katy community, we want to thank Barbara Lazor and Katie Cross for their dedication to the health care industry and for providing above and beyond care to the community.”
Nurses from all areas of practice such as patient care, education, research and administration are nominated by their peers and co-workers for the prestigious honor. This is Barbara and Katie first time as a recipient.
Barbara Lazor, BSN, MBA is the Chief Nursing Executive at CHRISTUS St. Catherine Hospital and has been employed with the institution since 2003. Katie Cross, MSN is Director of Education at Christus St. Catherine Hospital and has been employed with the institution since 2002.
