On Tuesday, June 25, Donna Hoy, Legislative Aide of the Eastern Shore office of Maryland Senator Jim Mathias, (D), District 38, presented Caroline Schweikert, BSN, RN, with a Senate resolution honoring her for her 50 years of service to patients at Peninsula Regional Medical Center. Schweikert is just the second person in the 116 year history of PRMC to reach the 50 years of service milestone.
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. In 1977, she was honored for her work during a "Celebration of Nursing Excellence" ceremony held at the Governor's mansion in Annapolis.
She is a 1962 graduate of the PGH School of Nursing who later went on to earn a Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree in 1998, graduating Summa Cum Laude from Wilmington College. She is recognized not only on the Pediatrics Unit but throughout PRMC as a leader, a mentor and a tremendous nursing and clinical asset for staff and physicians alike.
