Nursing at Suburban Hospital

For more than 70 years, nursing has been at the center of patient care at Suburban Hospital. Over time, new technologies have improved the way we care for patients in our hospital. But the one thing that has not changed is the time honored tradition of caring and compassionate nursing at Suburban Hospital. 

Nursing excellence isn’t something we simply strive for, it is our standard.  It is achieved through a commitment to professional nursing and dedication to superior patient care.  Nurses at Suburban provide the highest level of care by applying evidence-based best practices, collaboration, compassion, and integrity.  Our staff of almost 500 nurses are constantly learning, mentoring, and seeking to apply the most recent clinical innovations in all areas of the hospital. 

As an integral part of the care team, our nurses have a wide range of clinical choices including Intensive Care, Cardiology, Cardiothoracic Open Heart Recovery, Operating Room, PACU, Emergency Services, Adult Medical/Surgical and many more.  They are encouraged to participate in the nursing governance structure and they are provided with professional development opportunities, mentorship, and exposure to the latest clinical innovations. 

Nurses at Suburban Hospital follow six principles that guide them in their work at the bedside, in the OR, in the field, as educators, and wherever they serve patients.  Click here to learn more.
