Healthcare Heroes Honored

The Duke Raleigh Hospital Patient and Family Advisory Council and Brenda Wilcox were among the 24 recipients of the Triangle Business Journal’s 2020 Healthcare Hero Award. They were honored at a ceremony last week.

The Duke Raleigh Hospital Patient and Family Advisory Council, which just celebrated its fourth anniversary, has transformed how the hospital treats patients. The peer-to-peer rounding program and the group’s assistance with the redevelopment of the hospital’s in room cafĂ© menu were noted in their nomination.

The other Duke Raleigh Hospital honoree was Brenda Wilcox, MSN, RN, AOCNS, AGCNS-BC, a clinical nurse specialist at Duke Cancer Center Raleigh. She was chosen for her unique way of taking what she knows and relaying it to her patients and their caregivers in a manner they understand.

They joined three others from the Duke University Health System that were honored on February 13. They include Jennifer R. Beltran, MSN, RNC-MNN, NE-BC; Kellie Capes, MSN, RN, AGCNS-BC, PCCN; and Liset Denis, BSN, RN, CNML, from Duke University Hospital and Duke Regional Hospital.
