BUFFALO, NEW YORK; SEPTEMBER 17, 2008-Erie County Medical Center (ECMC) Corporation officials recently announced that they have experienced an outstanding nurse recruitment year for the organization.  While the nursing shortage continues across the nation and within the Western New York region, ECMC officials said they have managed to attract more recent nursing graduates and experienced nurses than any previous year within the past twelve years.  To date for 2008, ECMC has hired 125 Registered Nurses (RNs) and 56 Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs) for a total of 181 nurses hired.  In 2007, ECMC hired 109 RNs and 66 LPNs for a total of 175 nurses.  In 2006, ECMC hired 109 RNs and 32 LPNs for a total of 141.  Having the ability to effectively recruit and retain nurses has allowed ECMC to maintain the best nurse to patient staffing ratios in Western New York. 

When asked about possible reasons for ECMC's consistently improving nurse recruitment successes, ECMC Vice President of Nursing Bonnie Ann Glica, R.N., M.S., said, "Nurses are choosing ECMC because through their clinical experiences on site as students nurses and/or from discussions with other colleagues, they are aware that the training provided at ECMC is exceptional and the institution is truly committed to providing the highest quality of care.  Mentoring from expert clinicians as well as exposure to complex patients and progressive standards of care have placed ECMC at the top of the list for those seeking rewarding and dynamic nursing careers."   

ECMC Nurse Recruiter Sue Przepasniak, R.N., said, "We heard repeatedly from graduates of many area colleges over the past several months as we hosted nursing recruitment events, that during their clinical rotations at ECMC, our nursing staff took the time to teach every aspect of quality nursing care.  They said this was not the case at many other hospitals."  

ECMC Human Resources Department staff members expect to hire more nurses by the end of 2008, and officials anticipate that the recruitment/hiring trend at ECMC will continue as a result of a greater awareness of the excellence of ECMC's nursing program.  Those individuals who are qualified and interested in nursing opportunities at ECMC should contact Nurse Recruiter Sue Przepasniak, R.N., at 716-898-ECMC (3262) or ecmcjobs@ecmc.edu.   

The ECMC Corporation includes an advanced academic medical center (ECMC) with 550 inpatient beds and 136 skilled-nursing-home beds, on- and off-campus health centers, over 40 outpatient specialty care clinics and the Erie County Home, a skilled nursing facility.  ECMC is the regional center for trauma, burn care, rehabilitation and is a major teaching facility for the State University of New York at Buffalo.  Most ECMC physicians, dentists and pharmacists are dedicated faculty members of the University.  More Western New York residents are choosing ECMC for exceptional patient care and customer service provided as a result of its Culture of Care.
