Nurse at Medical City Green Oaks Hospital among DFW’s “The Great 100 Nurses”

Medical City Green Oaks Hospital of Dallas is pleased to announce Chief Nursing officer, Pamela Whitley, has received recognition as one of DFW’s “The Great 100 Nurses.”

Pamela’s background in nursing began in 1987. She started her career in psychiatric care as a Mental Health Tech (MHT) over 25 years ago and continued to enrich her knowledge and experience through the years to eventually become the Chief Nursing Officer and Chief Operating Officer at Medical City Green Oaks Hospital.

One nurse describes “Pam” by saying, “She was my nurse when I was struggling with a tragic loss. She was so supportive, always checking on me and asking what she could do to help.”

“It is very much an honor to receive this recognition. I can truly say I have always loved psychiatric nursing and still do!” said Pamela Whitley.

“Pam has made many contributions to Medical City Green Oaks Hospital and is an outstanding leader and talented nurse. She is very deserving of this prestigious award,” said Tom Collins, CEO of Medical City Green Oaks Hospital.

“The Great 100 Nurses” event recognizes RNs for excellence in the art and science of nursing. Nurses were nominated by peers and selected because they are role models, leaders, community servants, compassionate caregivers and significant contributors to the nursing profession. Honorees come from all practice areas in nursing, including acute care, sub-acute care, psychiatry, school nursing, nurse leaders, academics and more.

Pamela Whitley will be recognized during the 2016 DFW Great 100 Nurses Celebration on May 3, 2016 at the Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center. For more information:
