(Mar. 30, 2018 – Anderson, S.C.) – An AnMed Health nurse is one of the best in
South Carolina. Shaunda Trotter, assistant vice president for nursing, is among the
recipients of the 2018 Palmetto Gold Award.
Palmetto Gold Awards are given to 100 nurses each year who are selected from a
nomination process that includes nurses from across the state and a variety of practice
settings. The South Carolina Nurses Foundation states that the nurses selected exemplify
excellence in nursing practice and have a proven commitment to their profession.
“Shaunda demonstrates a deep commitment to our patients and to her colleagues,” said
Tina Jury, AnMed Health’s executive vice president for hospital operations and chief
nursing officer. “She is a shining example of a caring professional who has dedicated her
life to this purposeful profession. We are very proud of her.”
Trotter, who has been a nurse for more than 17 years said, “I am humbled and honored to
be nominated and selected for Palmetto Gold. To truly enjoy coming to work every day
and having the ability to make a difference is a blessing and a true gift. The role I am
blessed to be in every day is an award within itself.”
The Palmetto Gold Program, which began in 2001, is a statewide nursing recognition
program that showcases nurses’ contributions to patient care and raises scholarship funds
for students pursuing an RN.
