Nurse becomes 2nd employee to reach 50 years of service at Peninsula Regional


Peninsula Regional Medical Center in Salisbury, Md., recently recognized 425 employees celebrating anniversaries with the medical center at the organization’s annual Employee Appreciation Banquet held in conjunction with National Hospital Week activities.

Among those specially honored was Caroline Schweikert, RN, BSN, who is the second person in PRMC’s 116-year history to reach 50 years of service.

Schweikert has spent her entire nursing career in the Peninsula Regional Medical Center pediatrics unit and is frequently mentioned on patient satisfaction surveys for the care and compassion she provides, in particular to critically ill children, according to a news release. In 1977, she was honored for her work during a “Celebration of Nursing Excellence” ceremony held at the governor’s mansion in Annapolis, Md.

In honor of her 50th year of service to PRMC’s patients, Schweikert received a Governor’s Citation from Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley congratulating her on her achievement, and a proclamation from the city of Salisbury and Mayor Jim Ireton declaring May 9, 2013, as Caroline Schweikert Day.

Schweikert earned her BSN in 1998. According to the release, she is recognized throughout PRMC as a leader, a mentor and a tremendous nursing and clinical asset for staff and physicians.
