Local nurses Ben Armstrong, Laura Manwarren and Brenda Tiefenthaler will be honored at a celebration in Des Moines on Sunday as three of Iowa’s 100 Great Nurses for 2017.

The 100 Great Iowa Nurses program identifies 100 outstanding nurses every year whose courage, competence, and commitment to patients and the nursing profession stand out above all others. These nurses go above and beyond to contribute significantly to the profession of nursing.

“Spencer Hospital is fortunate to have exceptional nurses that contribute to the care of our patients in so many ways,” Spencer Hospital President and CEO Bill Bumgarner said. “It’s rewarding that so many of Spencer Hospital nurses have been recognized within Iowa’s ‘Greatest 100 Nurses’ program since it was initiated several years ago. This year’s honorees from the Spencer medical community — Ben, Laura and Brenda — are truly outstanding as caregivers and leaders within our organization. Our hospital family extends its congratulations to them along with our appreciation for the many contributions they make in service to our patients, family members and health care team.”
