Amy Hamilton's Picture

Amy Hamilton

CNO for DMC Huron Valley-Sinai-Hospital

Amy Hamilton is an innovative, compassionate and extremely dedicated leader. She has been instrumental in keeping staff engaged and safe, dreamt up innovative ideas to take care of COVID-19 patients and has been the glue that holds our inpatient departments together.

When we as a leadership team reflect on 2020 to date each one of us has independently stated that we couldn't have weathered the storm without Amy. March, April and May were hard months to get through. We were faced with challenges that we have not had to face in our healthcare careers. 2020 redefined the way in which we delivered care and pushed staff to the limits physically, mentally and emotionally.

Amy Hamilton was the bright light that lit the way for our front line, and for us as well. She navigated challenges with grace and grit and kept her teams going even when they thought they had nothing left to give. I realize that this can be seen as 'just doing her job' (though doing it very well) and yes, in a sense that is true, and I view Amy as an exceptional leader for these very reasons. That being said, Amy set the bar high and consistently went above and beyond to ensure our patients and staff were treated with dignity and respect. She showed a level of innovation and quick thinking that sets the tone for the way in which Huron Valley-Sinai Hospital would navigate the pandemic.

Danita Terry's Picture

Danita Terry


Danita is a recipient of the 2020 Tenet Heroes Hall of Fame award, Tenet’s highest honor.

Danita has worked at Sinai-Grace for 24 years and has proven to be an incredible leader providing compassionate and quality care. Danita works the midnight shift by choice because she finds purpose in supporting patients when they tend to feel the most isolated and vulnerable. Her focus on care and compassion is what she offers to everyone around her. From purchasing personal care items for patients who don't have the means to buy them, to organizing a donation fund to help support a co-worker who had lost her husband to COVID. Danita is also a source of positive encouragement outside of the hospital in her community especially as it pertains to taking health precautions during COVID. She is a shining example of the community built on care at Sinai-Grace Hospital and the pride our team has in serving this community.
