“In 2017, I relocated from Memphis to Crossville to work at CMC,” says CMC Medical Surgical Unit Nurse Manager Laura Kee. “It was the absolute best decision for me. The combination of newly renovated patient care floors and the team-oriented atmosphere at CMC are very unique.”

Cumberland County Playhouse is located at 221 Tennessee Ave. in Crossville, and the event will start at 4 p.m. Those who attend will have an opportunity to get to know the CMC Nursing Leadership team, learn about opportunities available and complete online applications. In addition to this, guests can partake in appetizers, mini chair massage sessions (compliments of Nature’s Way Massage), take their photo on the red carpet, and enjoy a special performance by the Cumberland County Playhouse at 6 p.m.

“We know there are great and talented nurses within our region, and we’re delighted to have this special opportunity with the Cumberland County Playhouse to engage with them and grow our nursing team,” Kee encourages.
