Princeton Baptist Medical Center on Tuesday announced that Letisha Shields, nurse manager in the Medical Intensive Care Unit, has been honored by Tenet Healthcare as part of its annual recognition program. Letisha has been named a “Tenet Hero” for her incredible contributions in 2020.

“Letisha is well deserving of this distinction and embodies what it means to be a healthcare hero,” said Princeton Baptist Medical Center CEO, Mike Neuendorf. “We are grateful for Letisha’s dedication, selflessness and commitment to compassionate care, particularly throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, and we are proud to work alongside her as part of our Princeton Baptist family.”
