Our Nurses

CNO - Brian Pinelle

“It’s been said before that nursing is a wonderfully exciting and challenging profession. It requires a passion unlike any other. It is great for us to be reminded of what inspired us to become nurses and what drives us to continue providing care to those who need our help the most- our patients.

The heart of our hospital is found in the lives of our more than 400 RNs, LPNs, nurse techs and unit secretaries. Our hospital and our patients depend on our nurses every day. And, every day, our nurses provide compassionate care that is based on best practices. And, it shows.

The achievements our hospital earns are gained by the daily dedication of our nurses. Consider the national recognition we’ve received for our cancer, gastrointestinal, pulmonary, stroke, surgical and wound care programs. Think of the role our nurses play in earning this recognition.

At Gulf Coast Regional Medical Center, we are proud of our nurses and recognize their individual contributions as well as their team efforts to provide the best patient care possible”

Our Nursing Philosophy

We believe in providing quality care to our patients. Our focus is to treat our patients with loyalty, dignity and respect and provide patient care and education with a family-centered approach.

We believe in a work environment that encourages and empowers staff involvement in critical thinking and decision making to enhance personal and professional growth and development. We provide our nurses the opportunity to share in the decision making approach while accepting accountability and responsibility. We believe in teamwork and collaboration within our nursing units and within the hospital.
