Tower Health Employees Receive Special Awards During Advanced Practice Providers Week

Seven Tower Health employees who have made an impact on their colleagues, patients, and community received special awards as part of the system’s recognition of Advanced Practice Providers Week.

Tower Health accepted nominations for the Advanced Practice Provider Excellence Award and the Physician Collaboration Award. The Advanced Practice Provider Excellence Award recognizes outstanding Advance Practice Providers (APP) who have contributed to the profession and their respective hospitals, while the Physician Collaboration Award recognizes Physician and APP collaboration, education, and advocacy.

The selected honorees were nominated by their fellow health system colleagues. This year’s recipients include:

Phoenixville Hospital:

Pottstown Hospital:

Reading Hospital:

St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children:

“The work our APPs do each day is critical to the success of our organization,” said Suzanne Wenderoth, MD, Chief Medical Officer at Tower Health. “They are dedicated to their patients and are true partners who work across the organization to continue to enhance the level of care we provide. It is an honor to celebrate this recognition week and acknowledge the expertise they provide. I thank them for all they do.”

This recognition coincides with the celebration of National Advanced Practice Provider Week from Sept. 25 to Sept. 29. This week honors the contribution of the health system’s Physician Assistants, Nurse Practitioners, Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists, Clinical Nurse Specialists, and Certified Nurse-Midwives. This important group of providers elevates the fields of medicine and nursing to ensure our most vulnerable populations receive high-quality, evidence-based care.

“This year’s national theme is ‘APPsolute Excellence.’ This is a fitting theme for the amazing team of APPs we have at Tower Health,” said Amanda McNicholas, DNP, MBA, CRNP, Tower Health’s Chief Advanced Practice Provider Officer, and Reading Hospital Vice President, Orthopedics, Trauma, and Critical Care Services. “This is an exciting opportunity to celebrate and raise awareness about the growing role of APPs in healthcare.”
