March of Dimes celebrated their 4th annual “Nurse of the Year” awards banquet last week in Ohio, honoring Debbie Borowske, DNP, RN, GCNS-BC, as their Nurse of the Year. Borowske was recognized for her work in long-term acute care, rehabilitation hospice, and palliative care as the director of Post-Acute Care Services at Southwest General Health Center.
After finding a gap in the hospice services offered by Southwest General, Borowske launched a community-based palliative care program which sees an average of 50 patients per month. Her program consistently achieves its goal of improving life and providing comfort to those with serious, chronic, and life-threatening illnesses. In addition to her work at the health center, Debbie also holds adjunct faculty positions in nursing at Case Western Reserve University, Malone University, and Kent State University.
The annual March of Dimes Event recognizes exceptional nurses, creates awareness of professional excellence, and promotes the future of nursing helping to advance their mission to improve the health of babies by preventing premature birth, birth defects, and infant mortality.
