Hurst, Texas, June 3, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Trusted ER, one of DFW’s most innovative emergency care providers, has received not one, but two Excellence in Nursing Awards from D Magazine. The Excellence in Nursing Award recognizes health professionals who influence organizational standards or policies or the nursing profession and the community through service and dedication. This achievement is a first in DFW’s FSED market and underscores Trusted Medical’s commitment to providing first-class healthcare. The Awarded Nurses stand out for going out of their way to provide patients with exceptional care, a continued willingness to serve in any capacity, and being deeply involved in their respective communities. 2021 Excellence in Nursing Award recognition goes to Kelly Ann Williams, MSN, CPNP-AC, PNP-BC – Trusted ER Senior Director of Pediatrics and Rhonda McGuire, RN – Trusted ER Facility Administrator.
At Trusted Medical, our mission is to provide the best healthcare for patients in the most comfortable environment where caregivers can build trust and personal relationships and spend more time with patients during visits. Rhonda McGuire has worked tirelessly throughout her nursing career and even harder for the past year and a half during the pandemic. During her time as a Trusted ER Facility Administrator, Rhonda helped establish a clinical program to help identify, treat, and rescue victims of trafficking when they present themselves in the ER environment. In addition, she oversaw efforts to raise thousands of dollars and give Christmas presents to the survivors and their children.
“In my 20 years of nursing, this is the first time I’ve ever received an award or recognition,” says Rhonda. “I am so honored to accept this Excellence in Nursing Award and could never have imagined it for myself. I love being a nurse and caring for people in need.”
The work of Kelly Ann Williams has been instrumental in the development of the organization’s pediatric service lines and treatment protocols. In response to the global COVID-19 pandemic, he led the development of My Trusted Pediatrics, a mobile concierge service for children that treats illness and injury, conducts tests, conducts health screenings and evaluates behavioral health in the comfort of patients at home. Kelly Ann’s selflessness was fully manifested when, as a result of a phone call she received during a Trusted ER and NBC 5 DFW COVID-19 telethon, she volunteered her time off to drive a cancer-stricken woman to her treatment appointments.
“Caring for people has always been a passion of mine,” says Kelly Ann. “One of the main reasons I entered pediatrics was to be a child advocate. This award is just a bonus and a reminder of the work that is indeed bearing fruit and affecting those around me.”
