Designed to honor frontline medical workers
Dutchess County on Tuesday (Nov. 24) unveiled a statue by Nestor Madalengoitia, “The Nurse,” outside the county office building on Market Street in Poughkeepsie.
The statue is designed “to commemorate the service and sacrifice of nurses during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic,” the county said in a statement.
The county is also seeking licensed nurses to serve as public health nurses within the health department and Office for the Aging. See dutchessny.gov/jobs.
