Kendra Scott and her team honored nurses at The Woman’s Hospital of Texas
In celebration with National Nurses Week
HOUSTON, Texas – On Friday, May 7, hundreds of nurses at The Woman’s Hospital of Texas were surprised with a special event honoring National Nurses Week.
Kendra Scott, world-renowned jewelry and home accessories designer, collaborated with The Woman’s Hospital of Texas for a “surprise and delight” event to inspire and lift the spirits of the incredible healthcare workers at the hospital. The Woman’s Hospital of Texas’ nursing staff is over 98% female. Scott and her team chose this hospital because these nurses work tiresome hours to safeguard moms and babies while also providing compassionate care since the state of Covid-19.
The Woman’s Hospital of Texas’ Chief Executive Officer Elizabeth Ortega and Chief Nursing Officer Ann Russell began the event with welcome messages.
A video message from Kendra Scott, with the following statement, was shown to the crowd of nurses to thank them for their heroic work over the past year:
“This week as we take a moment to show gratitude for our nurses and healthcare workers, I am reminded of the tireless bravery and heroism they’ve shown throughout this past year,” said Scott, founder and executive chairwoman of Kendra Scott. “It is an honor to partner with The Woman’s Hospital of Texas to bring these healthcare heroes some well-deserved joy and celebration.”
Robin LaLone, Kendra Scott philanthropic manager for Southeast Texas, introduced the balloon pop, where four hundred balloons were released from the ceiling, each filled with confetti and a gift. This became the highlight of the morning for all nurses. Making up the 400 gifts were boxes of jewelry, Signature Tumbler candles and redemption cards for The Color Bar™.
“We are so proud of the Woman-first care our nurses and colleagues have provided for our patients and each other during such turbulent times the past year,” said Ortega. “Our nurses care for moms, babies, and all women like no one else, and are steadfast in their dedication to improving each human life. I am extremely grateful for the generosity of Kendra Scott and her team, and honored they created such an exceptionally wonderful event for our hardworking nurses to help us celebrate Nurses Week.”
