Hudson Valley Hospice is celebrating its nurses in all of their roles! From LPNs to registered nurses, nurse case managers to triage nurses, on-call nurses to nurse practitioners, they make a difference each moment of every day in their patients and their loved ones' lives.

Hudson Valley Hospice is proud to call many of these heroes their own, with three of them being nominated for Hudson Valley Magazine’s 2024 Excellence in Nursing Awards:

  • Shannon Johns, RN, CHPN
  • Ricardo King, LPN
  • Karen Mercado, LPN

Their calling to end-of-life work and the care they provide to 600 patients and their families daily in Dutchess and Ulster counties is an inspiration. So many of the testimonials Hudson Valley Hospice receives focus on the quality and compassionate care that affects the patient and the whole family.
