StephStephanie Neumayer Named Great Iowa Nurse

Congratulations to Stephanie Neumayer RN, BSN, MedSurg-BC, PED-BC for being named a 2024 Great Iowa Nurse!

The goal of Great Iowa Nurses is to recognize Iowa nurses who routinely go above and beyond every day and take that extra step to ensure safe, compassionate care for their patients. 

A portion of Stephanie's nomination read: "Integrity and curiosity are Stephanie's superpowers. She thoughtfully identifies and pursues ways to improve patient experiences, nursing processes, and staff disposition through mentorship, education, and policy development.

Great Iowa Nurse will hold a virtual ceremony in the Spring. St. Anthony will honor Steph with a reception as well.


The Iowa Hospital Association created a video to send to Dallas County Hospital in Perry, Iowa in light of their community tragedy. St. Anthony participated with a video saying, "PERRY STRONG!" and featured as the last clip on the video. Over 30 hospitals and systems participated in the video. Below is a photo from the recording day. To watch the video, visit YouTube and type in Iowa Hospital Association.
