Centennial Medical Center Nurse Inducted into the Tenet Heroes Hall of Fame
Centennial Medical Center announced today that one of its nurses, Catherine Strain, has been inducted into the Tenet Heroes Hall of Fame, Tenet Healthcare Corporation’s (NYSE: THC) highest honor for employees, at a ceremony in Dallas, Texas, on April 14.
Strain realized at the age of 10 that she wanted to be a nurse. Her nursing focus took on a new life when she encountered a young woman who had been raped. From then on, Strain promised herself that when forensic patients entered the hospital, she would find a way to care for them. Seeing the need to help victims of sexual assault, Strain obtained her Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE) certification and Certified Forensic Nurse licensure. Strain is one of only 200 SANEs licensed in Texas, one of eight SANEs that service Collin County, and the only SANE for Grayson County. Strain’s passion is working with children, and she is developing a program specifically for child victims in Grayson County.
“Our Tenet Hero inductees represent the best of who we are at Tenet and what we do as health care providers in the communities we serve,” said Trevor Fetter, Tenet’s president and chief executive officer. “The passion and quality of care provided by professionals like Catherine serve as an inspiration to us all.”
Strain was one of seven employees inducted into the Tenet Heroes Hall of Fame. This year’s recipients were chosen from almost 100 compelling nominations. Tenet Heroes are nominated by their hospital’s leadership team and selected based on their dedication to their patients, co-workers and communities. The Tenet Heroes Hall of Fame recognizes exceptional employees for their dedication and hard work.
