Tucson Nurses Week Foundation honored Benson resident Brandy Owen, RN, as one of their 2016 Tucson Fabulous 50 Nurses. The award was presented at a gala on Friday, May 6 at Loews Ventana Canyon Resort to kick off this year’s Nurses Week.
Owen serves as director of the BAYADA Home Health Care office in Sierra Vista, which provides in-home care so adults or seniors with chronic conditions or recovering from illness or injury can remain safe at home. Services include nursing, physical therapy, speech language pathology, occupational therapy, dietician services, and medical social work.
The Fabulous 50 Nurses were chosen from throughout southern Arizona by their peers for their role modeling and mentoring of others, concern for humanity, and their contributions to both the Tucson community and the profession of nursing.
