SSM Health St. Anthony Hospital is pleased to announce Barbara Lowery, RN, as the recipient of the 2019 Excellence in Nursing Award.
The award recipient is chosen by the SSM Health St. Anthony Hospital medical staff for dedication to providing quality patient care and for adhering to the hospital’s Mission, vision and values.
“Barb would tell you that her number one goal is to serve her patients,” said Dr. Corey Ponder, an orthopedic surgeon serving patients at SSM Health Bone & Joint Hospital at St. Anthony. “Her patient-centric approach to nursing care allows her to focus on not only making sure the doctor’s orders are carried out but also on getting to know her patients on a deeper level. She truly provides a level of care that achieves the Mission of SSM Health: Through our exceptional health care services, we reveal the healing presence of God.”
Nurses follow a code of ethics which requires them to promote health, to prevent illness, to restore health and to alleviate suffering. Inherent in nursing is respect for human rights, including cultural rights, the right to life and choice, to dignity and to be treated with respect. Nurses render care to the individual, the family and the community.
Lowery is a registered nurse at the SSM Health Bone & Joint Hospital at St. Anthony, a facility dedicated to helping patients with orthopedic surgery solutions. She has served Bone & Joint Hospital patients for eight years.

For you. For health. For life.
