CCH nurses honored with Barton Excellence awards

Group was selected for their commitment to the mission, vision and values of CCH

Congratulations to the nurses who have received the Barton Excellence in Nursing Practice Awards for 2020. Cape Cod Hospital has received a generous contribution to fund this annual awards program to recognize and reward outstanding clinical and professional care by nurses at CCH. 

The award is named in honor of Miss Ethel Barton, RN, a former director of Nursing and assistant administrator of Cape Cod Hospital. Barton, through her significant leadership and contribution to the growth and development of Cape Cod Hospital a century ago, epitomized all the qualities of superior nursing practice. 

The recipients of the Barton Excellence in Nursing Practice Award have been selected for their commitment to the mission, vision & values of Cape Cod Hospital.  

The Laraja Foundation, founded by the late Joseph G. Laraja, funded this award and is a philanthropic group supporting other healthcare scholarships and awards.
