CONWAY, SC– Conway Medical Center (CMC) is pleased to announce Melissa Hare, RN, Medical Unit Nurse, as a 2017 Palmetto Gold Award recipient. Since 2002, the Palmetto Gold Nursing Recognition program honors South Carolina Registered Nurses who exemplify excellence in nursing practices and demonstrate commitment to the nursing profession.  This extremely competitive program usually garners several 100 nominees from around the state but only 100 nurses are selected.

Melissa is an active member of the CMC nursing team and volunteers for a local community shelter.   She is a leader in nursing practice by being a catalyst for change and encouraging growth and development as a primary Charge Nurse.  She played an integral role in the implementation of a Unit Council for her unit on which she serves as Chair person.

This is not the first time that Melissa has been recognized for her compassion, dedication, and capabilities.  She was awarded the Nursing Excellence Award for Nurses Week 2011 for demonstrating the highest clinical quality of patient care; the DAISY Award, a patient nominated accolade, for extraordinary nurses in 2013; and Star Fish of the Quarter for which she was nominated by her peers for demonstrating the FISH Philosophy during her daily duties.

Hare is a member of the Academy of Medical-Surgical Nurses Association and has been a member of the Conway Medical Center team since 2015.
