Nursing at Penn Medicine

A Message from James Ballinghoff

James Ballingoff, MSN, MBA, RN, NEA-BC

At Penn Presbyterian Medical Center we are committed to creating a culture of excellence for our patients, their families, and the community that we serve.  Here, the high-tech world of advanced medical and surgical procedures meets the compassionate care of our highly skilled nursing staff.

Over the years I've known a number of nurses who left Penn Presbyterian, only to return. We offer a high acuity and high technology experience in a friendly compassionate setting. Unlimited opportunities allow those individuals who practice here to thrive professionally and personally.

Nurses at Penn Presbyterian make the difference. Our incredibly dedicated nursing workforce strives to improve the health and well-being of every individual that walks through the door. From pre-admission to post discharge, we ensure that the human component of compassion is maintained in the world of high-tech medicine.

I hope you choose to practice the art and science of nursing at Penn Presbyterian Medical Center. You, too, can make a difference and become part of our family.
