Urbana native, Abby Martinez, recognized during National Nurses' Week
During National Nurses’ Week, we’re taking time to highlight our nurses who mean the world. Abby Martinez is an RN Charge Nurse at Mercy Health– Springfield.
The Urbana native has wanted to be a nurse since she was 10 years old. “There was something about nursing that seemed so amazing to me; the relationships created, the science, the love, the compassion, the numbers, it was all so incredible,” Abby recalled.
According to Abby’s supervisor, Debra, Abby is a true hero. She has several children and a husband at home, but is always one of the first willing to volunteer to work in the COVID-19 unit and does so with a great attitude. She is here to make a difference in patients’ lives.
