Professional Nurses throughout Kettering Health Network (KHN) strive for excellence through the integration of our core values into nursing practice. Our goal is to
optimize patient outcomes and the patient/family experience through the utilization of evidenced based best practice and a model of relationship based care. We view
the therapeutic nurse/patient/family relationship as a privileged, sacred trust that is the foundation for health and healing.
KHN nurses are committed to professional growth through continued education and certification and are supported in that pursuit by each facilities staff / professional
Celebrating the Nurses of Kettering Health Network
The latest Gallop Poll again showed that nursing is the highest ranked profession by the public for trust. It is the care that we provide to our patients and families that make us an excellent network. It is the care that you provide to each other that create our great teams. May God continue to bless you individually and as a team as we celebrate nurses this year.
