Martha Jefferson Hospital has awarded its Nurse of The Year, as part of Nurse Appreciation Week.
The winner this year is Alan Young, who has been a nurse for eight years.
He had been a volunteer with the Mother Teresa's Sisters Organization in India before becoming a nurse.
Young was surprised to be chosen for the award.
"My jaw dropped a couple of feet I guess and I just said thank you. I was at a loss for words and appreciated it very much."
Martha Jefferson Hospital is also offering prizes and free breakfasts to their nurses this week as part of their appreciation for the work they do.
