LOUISVILLE, KY – The 3rd Annual Kelsie Small Future Healer Award was presented to Kim Wilson, RN and Director of Critical Care Services at UofL Health – UofL Hospital. Kim was chosen because of her dedication to the medical field and her commitment to serving patients each and every day.
The award was established in 2021 in honor of Kelsie Small, a Central High School graduate and nursing student at Northern Kentucky University, who was killed the day before Mother’s Day in 2020. Each year, the award is presented to a medical professional at UofL Health who exemplifies excellence, caring, compassion and commitment to education.
Kim Wilson is a skilled and compassionate health care worker at UofL Health. She not only demonstrates the mission, vision and values of UofL Health, but also has a huge heart, which is why it’s fitting to present the honor on Valentine’s Day.
During her 20-plus years with UofL Health, helping patients and their families during some of the most difficult times in their lives and having co-workers who have become family has kept her centered. She’s an example of the nurse and leader Kelsie Small aspired to be.
