John Fairley and Crystal Hepburn – President, R.N.A.O. Windsor Essex Chapter

Nominations are now being accepted for the 15th Annual Lois Fairley Nursing Award.

The award is named for Lois Fairley, a graduate of Windsor’s Grace Hospital nursing program in 1955, who spent her career caring for patients at Grace Hospital as a nurse and head nurse. She also served the nursing profession as a member of the Provincial Board of Directors of Registered Nurses Association of Ontario. She served as President of the Ontario Nurses Association and the Program Advisory Committee at St. Clair College.

In the past two years, the recipients of this award were “All Nurses Throughout Windsor and Essex County” for their outstanding care and extra effort demonstrated during COVID. As a symbol of their service to our community, there are dedicated benches at Windsor’s Jackson Park, Leamington’s Seacliff Park and outside the Amherstburg Health and Wellness Centre on Richmond street, recognizing the valuable contribution of Windsor and Essex County nurses.

The nomination process is easy. All you have to do is, in 500 words or less, tell a story about how a nurse impacted a patient’s life, family, workplace, or community.

For more information and nomination form visit the website here. All entries must be received by April 20th at 5pm.

The award is selected and given by the Windsor-Essex chapter of the Registered Nurses Association of Ontario from nominations received from the public.

The award presentation will take place in May.
