Anderson Nurse Chosen National Caregiver of the Year

Anderson's Mary Craig, RN, has been named Special Programs Caregiver of the Year by Maxim Healthcare Services, a national provider of home healthcare, behavioral care, healthcare staffing, personal caregiving, and population health and wellness solutions.

Craig has more than two decades of nursing experience and is most frequently assigned to cardiovascular intensive care units (CICUs). During her past eight years with Maxim, Craig has completed staffing contracts in 10 states, making a difference in the lives of countless patients along the way. Her assignments typically last 13 weeks and, despite the transient nature of her job, she is known for quickly taking charge at whichever facility she is placed. Thanks to her deep expertise and amiable demeanor, Craig often serves as a preceptor to new nurses in the high-pressure CICU.

In addition to her mentorship, Craig is known for the meticulous care and treatment she provides to her patients and her innate ability to deliver news to families – whether good or bad – with the utmost compassion. She ensures her patients are taken care of long after she’s gone to her next assignment. 

“Mary is a model of what a travel nurse should be,” said Alisha Beeman, national recruitment manager at Maxim. “She provides top-of-the-line patient care, and is flexible, coachable and willing to pick up shifts when needed. Most importantly, Mary is a compassionate and wonderful human being.”

A panel of judges selected Craig and three other regional winners from hundreds of nominations across the country. Now in its eighth year, the Caregiver of the Year Award program celebrates nurses and home healthcare aides for the key roles they play in delivering quality, patient-centered care to some of the nation’s most medically fragile and chronically ill patients.
