Next week, November 9–13, 2020, is Forensic Provider Week. This special week has been dedicated to honor the extraordinary work of providers who practice in this unique specialty. I would like to thank all of our SAFE providers that serve UPMC Chautauqua, Olean General Hospital and Jones Memorial Hospital: Tammy Bimber, Ramona Carbone, Brandace Gaylor, Jennifer Kier, Abigail Mostowy, Mackenzie Peterson, Tracey Rex, Eustolia Santana, Nicole Steinhauer, Glenda Stocking, Sandra Watkins, Cindy Wickstrom and Dr. AnnMarie Zimmermann.
Through knowledge, skills, and expertise, forensic providers demonstrate an ongoing commitment to quality, patient-centered care while addressing the acute and long-term health consequences of patients impacted by violence. In 2020, the year of the nurse, we salute your dedication and commitment to your patients and communities.
