Our vision

Active and retired nurses volunteer their time to honor the professional community of nurses.

The Nightingale Tribute
The Honor Guard was established after the unexpected passing of Ann O’ Flaherty RN  at St. Elizabeth’s Medical Center. Ann O’Flaherty was struck and killed in a tragic accident on December 15, 2021. Ann was a nurse for over 30 years at “St. Elizabeth’s Hospital”. In her memory we call our honor guard “Ann O’s Watch”.
