Kathryn M. Mullane Nursing Awards

In 2003 the Mullane family established the Kathryn M. Mullane Nursing Awards to honor and remember Kathryn, a beloved wife, mother and grandmother.  This unique award allows the recipient to enjoy a well-deserved gift, to be spent only on themselves.  Denis Mullane, Kathryn's husband, and their three children, Kevin, Denise and Gerald, wanted the nurses who go above and beyond the call of duty to realize they need to take care of themselves and have some fun.  The family feels very strongly that Kathryn would have loved this way of thanking those who took such good care of her.
