Boston (June 6, 2008) — The Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary (MEEI) recently awarded Cassie Cole, R.N., a resident of Burlington, Mass., with the Norman Knight Excellence in Leadership Award.
Cole joined the MEEI in February 2006 and has served in the position of clinical leader in Pediatrics for the past year. “In this year Cassie has demonstrated exceptional leadership skills and excellent clinical decision making. Cassie is a valued member of the Pediatric team and is an asset to the nursing profession and MEEI,” noted Carol Covell, R.N., M.S., Executive Vice President of Patient Services.
The Norman Knight Excellence in Leadership Award was established in honor of long-time MEEI friend Norman Knight. Two awards were established in his name to recognize achievements by nurses in two critical areas- clinical practice and leadership. Among his contributions is the Norman Knight Hyperbaric Medicine Center, the only hospital-based center in the Boston area that provides hyperbaric oxygen therapy.
