Phoebe Sumter Nurse Honored with National Award


Americus, GA | May 16, 2024 – A nurse in the labor, delivery, recovery and post-partum unit at Phoebe Sumter Medical Center received a prestigious national honor for her expertise and service.  PerfectServe®, a leading provider of cloud-based clinical collaboration and provider scheduling solutions, unveiled the honorees for the 2024 Nurses of Note awards program.  Among the distinguished list of 150 winners spanning 26 U.S. states and four countries is Shatoria Williams, RN, representing Phoebe Sumter.  

The Nurses of Note program celebrates the outstanding contributions of nurses across diverse backgrounds and titles, underscoring the rich tapestry of experience within the nursing profession.   

"It always feels good to be recognized and to win an award, especially considering I didn’t even know I was nominated. It is an honor to be a nurse and to be able to take care of patients and hold true to Phoebe’s Vision: To Make Every Life We Touch Better," Williams said.

The Nurses of Note program is now in its fourth year. PerfectServe says honorees are selected from a large group of nominees and stand out for their diligence, passion, leadership, and devotion to caring for others.

“Nurse recognition is just as important today as it was when we launched this program during the pandemic, and I can say without a doubt that these winners and their stories showcase the very best of what nurses have to offer,” said PerfectServe Chief Customer Officer and Chief Clinical Officer Kelly Conklin.  “Our commitment remains strong in shining a spotlight on their unwavering dedication and the critical role nurses play in healthcare, which is why we’re more excited than ever to celebrate and share their inspiring achievements with the world.”

PerfectServe will spotlight awardees on the company blog and social media channels during the month of May and will continue to share in-depth profiles shared on their blog throughout the year, further amplifying the remarkable stories and achievements of nurses worldwide.

Williams is originally from Milledgeville, GA and received her nursing degree from Albany State University. She has worked at Phoebe Sumter for three years.
