Our Story

Our Founding Story

Nuclear Care Partners was founded in 2011 by two nurses with a true passion for helping former atomic workers receive the highest quality of care. They were inspired by the captivating stories and unbelievable struggles of these sick workers who sacrificed their health and their lives to protect our country and serve in our nation’s nuclear weapons complex.

With the dream of making a difference in the lives of this special population, they heeded the calling to raise the standard of care for these atomic heroes and to create an organization focused on quality patient care, strong clinical programs, and positive patient outcomes.

Since our inception in 2011, our passion to serve every community in need has led to expansive growth as we serve hundreds of former atomic workers across the nation.

We are a community of healthcare professionals that care deeply about a population in need and are fulfilled by being a part of something bigger than ourselves. As we continue to grow, we remain committed to our founding mission—to elevate the standard of care for former nuclear weapons workers through our unique approach to care.

My nurses are magnificent, they treat me so well. They keep me stable and when they come into my home they help me with everything I need. I love them so much I even referred my brother and sister to Nuclear Care Partners.”

“I’ve never been so happy in my life to have someone care for me and work with me so much. I’ve got a life that I can still live and I want a quality of life, they give me that.”

Clarence B


Former Atomic Worker

“My nurses come in and take care of me a couple of times a week now, and every one of them is very pleasant, sharp, and gracious. I keep telling my nurses that they need to change their name to ‘Nuclear Care Angels’ because that’s what they are to me—they’re my angels.”
