In 1999, to further recognize exceptional nurses caring for patients, the Nightingale Awards of Pennsylvania added another accolade, The Patient Choice Award. In the Spring of that year, a press release was issued asking patients to write a letter describing a nurse who had touched their lives or the lives of their families in an unforgettable way. One nurse was chosen from the many letters which were received.
