NURSE APPRECIATION WEEK: Sycamore Shoals nurse retires with celebration


“Nurse Appreciation Week” had a special meaning for one outgoing nurse from Elizabethton. 

Bob Hester retired as an operating room nurse at Sycamore Shoals Hospital this week. He began his career as a Navy nurse before spending 15 years at Sycamore Shoals.

This week, hospital staff lined the hallway to say their goodbyes and wish Hester a happy retirement.

“Nurse Appreciation Week” lasts from May 6-12.
