Robertson Award honors exemplary work of Judson nursing assistants

Judson bestows the Raymond H. Robertson Nursing Assistant Award annually to outstanding nursing assistants who make a difference in the lives of residents in the Bruening Health Center, Judson’s five-star rated nursing facility. The Robertson Award was established in 1997 by Lorrie Robertson in memory of her late husband.

On October 15, eight state-tested nursing assistants at Judson were honored with the award for 2013.
