by Heather Ramsay-The Queen Charlotte Islands General Hospital administrator Kerry Laidlaw has won an excellence in nursing administration award from the College of Registered Nurses of British Columbia. Mr. Laidlaw started his career as a registered nurse and is now an administrator. Queen Charlotte Mayor Carol Kulesha, who announced his win at the Dec. 21 council meeting, said the award is a tremendous honor for one so young man. “Kerry is an essential element in a well-run hospital with high morale and a waiting list of nursing applicants,” she said. The enthusiastic efforts of the hospital and health centre professionals, Skidegate Band Council, and Northern Health enabled the nomination package to go forward, she said. Queen Charlotte’s health and wellness committee organized Mr. Laidlaw’s nomination and Cathy Ulrich, CEO of Northern Health, along with her nursing colleagues, formally submitted the application. “I’m honored to have been nominated by my peers,” said Mr. Laidlaw. He will be presented with the award in April.
