We love our Nurses!


We’ve all had a “Florence Nightingale” moment at some point in our lives – that time we recall a caring, competent nurse making things a little easier for us or a loved one. Hopefully, we remembered to say thank you. National Nurses Week, held each May, gives everyone another chance to say thanks.

“We are immensely proud of the 33 nurses and nurse practitioners who love their profession – and their patients – enough to donate their time and talent,” said Amanda Missey, BVMI’s President & CEO. One prime example is Terry Adelgais, RN, who has been a BVMI volunteer for almost 7 years. She is a mainstay on Tuesday mornings, and her many years of nursing experience translate to excellent patient care. Terry also introduces potential nurse volunteers to BVMI’s practice. She reviews credentials, provides orientation, and actively mentors the nurses as they begin serving at BVMI."


“We need volunteers to keep our Center functioning, and Terry is a vital team member,” says Michelle Kaye, MSN, RN, Nurse Manager. “I depend on her guidance to our new nurses and her experience as a nurse leader.” “BVMI salutes nurses everywhere during National Nurses Week,” said Missey. “We thank them for all they do, and hope others will, too.”
