IU Health Goshen R.N. wins award
Kathy Turco, R.N. at IU Health Goshen, was recently awarded the 2012 President’s Values Leadership Award from Indiana University Health.
Turco was one of 71 nurses nominated across the 18-hospital IU Health system. IU Health System President Dan Evans acknowledged Turco as a person “who demonstrates extraordinary dedication to the mission and values in their daily work, professional life, and community contributions.” In addition to a recognition dinner in Indianapolis earlier in November, Turco will receive a $3,000 award to further her development as a values leader. Turco plans to use the award money to help more youth attend Catholic HEART Workcamp, which costs $325 per person for food, lodging, and transportation.
A nurse with IU Health Goshen for 29 years — 26 of them in the emergency department — Turco also volunteers at the Center for Healing and Hope, teaches 2nd grade Sunday school and helps with the high school youth group at her church.
