Rusk County Memorial Hospital Celebrates National Nurses Week

Rusk County Memorial Hospital & Clinic at Riverside (RCMH) is proud to celebrate its wonderful staff of dedicated nursing professionals in honor of National Nurses Week. This week, held May 6 through May 12, 2018 is a national annual event to recognize nursing staff for their diligent work in providing the highest level of quality care to patients.
