We held the 3rd Annual We Love Our Nurses campaign throughout the month of May. We already knew that our hospital had the best nurses, but you certainly reiterated that point by making gifts in honor of those you love and cherish the most! This year’s 2023 We Love Our Nurses campaign winners are Shannon Morton, Assistant Vice President of Patient Care Services and Dustin Bass, Assistant President of Patient Care Services at Atrium Health Cabarrus. Both Shannon and Dustin received a Chef’s Table Experience at 73 & Main Restaurant in Mt. Pleasant, NC.
Kayla Efird, RN has been a true leader for the Neurosurgery Department at Cabarrus. She has moved up from an OR circulating nurse to the Service Line Leader for Neurosurgery. Kayla is dedicated, hardworking, and is always going above and beyond. She brings great positive energy and a warm sense of humor to work. She does the impossible….keeping things running smoothly for four busy surgeons and maintaining a strong team culture among the surgeons, scrub nurses, circulators, and the rest of the team. She certainly deserves this recognition.
Lauren West Ross displays excellent clinical skills with every patient she takes care of. She is empathetic, kind, and caring with all the patients and families she comes in contact with. Her dad and I can’t wait to see what the future holds for her! Thank you, Lauren, for giving of yourself in this field of nursing!
Jessica Murdock is the most loving and caring person. She has amazed us with the selflessness she showed daily.
I’m recognizing my wife, Shannon Morton, because her dedication and drive are unmatched.

She continues to strive for excellence in all that she does. She is pleasant, kind, and well-liked by all. Thank you Lauren for all that you do for our team!
