Claudia Pérez, head nurse at Clínica Nova Hospital, was rewarded with the national award of her area due to her work in healthcare institutions that have faced the pandemic in Monterrey, being Ternium's Community Hospital one of them.
In this COVID-19 pandemic, we should recognize all the healthcare workers that risk their lives in the front line during this battle against the virus.
Claudia Pérez, head nurse at the Clínica Nova Hospital, is an example of this commitment and dedication. The Mexican Federation of Nursing Schools (FEMCE, for its acronym in Spanish) rewarded her with the award of Excellency, Leadership, and Management "Olivama Tello López", for her work in Ternium's Community Hospital and Clínica Nova Hospital.
During the 2021 International Congress of FEMCE, which took place virtually in the middle of January, Pérez received this award, which is granted only to one person every year in Mexico.
"I want to share this award with the nursing team because it is thanks to their effort that we achieved this, thanks to all the teamwork and a philosophy of institutional work," Claudia highlighted.
The head nurse has helped with the management and coordination of Ternium's Community Hospital as well as the preparation, personnel training, logistics, implementation and operation.
With 28 years of service in the Clínica Nova Hospital, Pérez has a major in Intensive Care for adults; a certification ISO-9001:2015 as an Internal Auditor; and a certification in Six Sigma as a Green Belt 2009 in improvement projects.
The head nurse has helped with the management and coordination of Ternium's Community Hospital as well as the preparation, personnel training, logistics, implementation, and operation.
This Hospital started operations in April 2020 and it is still active, with the main objective of supporting the city of Monterrey in this COVID-19 pandemic.
"Ternium's Community Hospital has been a challenging project, but it was very satisfactory to be able to help our community in this sanitary emergency. This project was possible thanks to the institution's support and the people's commitment to offering high-quality healthcare."
