Carol Kuplen

Carol A. Kuplen, RN, MSN

St. Luke’s is one of the Top 100 Hospitals in the nation and one of the Top 15 Major Teaching Hospitals. In fact, St. Luke’s is the only hospital in the Lehigh Valley named one of Truven Health Analytics™ 100 Top Hospitals in the nation. The only one.

We Deliver the Care Patients Need

Nurses are vital to health care. Across St. Luke’s, our nurses have a critical responsibility to uphold the highest level of quality and ethical standards in their practice to ensure the delivery of superior health care to patients, families and the community. This responsibility is evident in all aspects of care - patient safety, care coordination, patient/family engagement, education, patient outcomes and quality of care. St. Luke’s nurses are highly trusted as a result; earning a well-deserved reputation for providing the highest level of quality and ethical care to our patients.

In recognition of National Nurse Week 2015 and the week’s theme of “Ethical Practice. Quality Care.”, we celebrate all of our exceptional nursing professionals at St. Luke’s and their commitment to delivering the care our patients need.

We take this opportunity to recognize our Nursing Excellence Award winners. These fine individuals are shining examples of St. Luke’s nurses at their best. They are selected for their outstanding nursing care, leadership and community contributions. It is a privilege to practice with such outstanding nurses who represent the “best” of the nursing profession.
