NEW YORK NURSE: March/April 2012
by Alison Munday
Lindella Artman is like many of the Health and Hospitals Corporation nurses, a dedicated professional and respected voice in her hospital and community.
She was recently honored at the Queens Hospital Center’s 75th Gala, for her “...selfless dedication to the patients of the Queens Hospital Center,” and “for being a registered nurse who has been a tireless advocate for patient safety and quality care.”
A nursing supervisor, Artman began nursing thirty years ago as a QHC staff nurse in the med-surg division, soon earning promotion to the surgical ICU.
She became a supervising clinician and, since 1998, has been a med-surg nursing supervisor, and is respected for “leadership abilities, positive influence on both the clinical and administrative team members and a deep commitment to her profession and her hospital.”
A dedicated NYSNA leader, she is the chairperson of her NYSNA bargaining unit, the Labor Caucas Vice Chair and Co-Chair of the QHC Women’s Concerns Sub-Committee, and has received the QHC-HHC Employee of the Year Award and the Nursing Excellence Award.
The Gala is sponsored biennially by the Queens Hospital Center Auxiliary.
