Celebrating National Nurses Week

It is National Nurses Week and hospitals all over East Texas are taking time to recognize the hard work and dedication of the nurses.

A tree was planted in Lufkin as a living reminder of their hard work. Nurses collected money to plant the tree. Memorial hospital also dedicated a bench and a plaque that reads "patient care services 2006" to remember their commitment to the field, and, also, to recognize how many lives nurses have changed.

There are 567 nurses and techs at memorial hospital.
