Kicking off Hospital Week with the Rex Milner Memorial Doctors vs. Nurses Softball Game
Every year, St. Francis holds the Nurses vs. Doctors Softball Game to kick off Hospital week in memory of long-time Nursing Supervisor and star pitcher Rex Milner. This year, the game will be held on Saturday, May 11th at Brookstone School at 11 am. St. Francis employees and medical staff are invited to bring their families out for this event. We will have food and fun while enjoying a game of softball. If you are interested in playing on the Doctors team, please contact Tina Etheridge at 706-320-2754 for more information and to sign up.

Celebrating our Nurses on National Nurses Day
May 6th, National Nurses Day, is not just a time to celebrate the amazing nurses we have here at St. Francis but a time to raise awareness about the importance of their contributions to our community. In honor of those who have received a Daisy Award Nomination over the last year, we will host a special luncheon at noon in the Sara Ruth Carroll Auditorium. These nominees have gone above and beyond in caring for their patients and our community. During the luncheon we will present the Daisy of the Year Award, Nurse of the Year Award, and the Daisy Team Award.

Recognizing our dedicated volunteers during Volunteer Appreciation Day
During National Volunteer Appreciation Week in April we celebrated our dedicated volunteers with a luncheon. Every day the St. Francis Auxiliary provides compassionate support and invaluable services to patients, families and visitors at St. Francis. Whether assisting at the Information Desk, in the ICU or Critical Care waiting rooms, the Cheer Cart or the Gift Shops, our volunteers contribute to the quality of health care at St. Francis Hospital. We cannot say thank you enough for their passion and dedication to our community.
