Contrina Glynn of Millis Recognized in Boston Globe’s Salute to Nurses

Nominated for Outstanding Work at Hebrew Rehabilitation Center in Boston

In May, Contrina Glynn of Millis was recognized in the Boston Globe’s annual “Salute to Nurses,” for her exemplary work at Memory Care at Hebrew Rehabilitation Center – Boston in Roslindale. Hebrew Rehabilitation Center offers long-term chronic care, post-acute rehabilitation, and outpatient services to seniors.  Hebrew Rehabilitation Center is the flagship campus for Hebrew SeniorLife, a senior care organization that is committed to improving the lives of older adults.
The Globe’s annual “Salute to Nurses” recognizes nurses whose dedication and caring have saved lives, soothed fears, and eased the pain of countless patients and their families.
Glynn was nominated by her colleague Robert Treiber, B.S.N., R.N., Nurse Manager at Hebrew Rehabilitation Center. In his “Salute to Nurses” nomination of Glynn, Treiber said, “Perseverance is Trina’s middle name. She perseveres through the many challenges a nurse has to deal with and this makes her a great nurse. During the spring of 2020, when we were overwhelmed with COVID-19, Trina always maintained a high level of professionalism and compassion. There were so many instances when Trina spent one-on-one time with very sick patients to make them feel at ease.”
“We have a nursing staff of 1,200 people who truly represent and live Hebrew SeniorLife’s core values,” said Tammy Retalic, M.S., R.N., Chief Nursing Officer and Vice President, Patient Care Services, Hebrew Rehabilitation Center. “Every day, they go above and beyond to provide world-class clinical care and to make a difference in the lives of our patients and their families.
“We all know that 2020 was a challenging year. I’m incredibly proud of the way our nurses led the way in protecting and caring for our patients, while providing comfort and solace during some of the most challenging days in their own lives, too.”
Hebrew SeniorLife offers many opportunities for nurses to advance their careers through professional development, tuition assistance, scholarships, and leadership opportunities. Hebrew SeniorLife recently launched a paid training program for those interested in beginning a career in nursing as a Certified Nursing Assistant. The next paid training session will run in August and is intended for those who have not already been working in this role. Please email [email protected] for details.
