We are Wakefield
Nursing Strong, and
together we can
make a difference
in every life.

Montefiore-Einstein nurses welcome each day with new energy and excitement, continuing our efforts to achieve Magnet® recognition, enhancing the patient experience and focusing on quality-of-care outcomes. We’re proud to boast such a transformational leadership team who foster continued innovation, collaboration and empowerment.

Throughout the pandemic and still to this day, aspects of Dr. Joanne R. Duffy’s Quality-Caring Model© are always on display. Our nurses are always engaged and empathetic when delivering patient-centered care, so much so that relationships and bonds are formed between patients and caretakers, rooted in compassion, trust and understanding. We have an unwavering commitment to restoring our patients to an optimal level of wellness and being seen as a loyal adversary throughout their health journey at Montefiore-Einstein.

As we face the challenges of 2021 and beyond, nurses and healthcare providers remain a vanguard. We’re a source of caring, kindness and healing for patients and colleagues alike; after all, nurses have been ranked as the most trusted profession 19 years in a row. As nurses, we have a responsibility to be actively involved in addressing and preventing healthcare disparity.
