The statue was sculpted by Larry Marcell in early 2012 and installed in April of that year.   The dedication from Marcell included these words:

“This sculpture was made for the people of Oak Harbor & I wish to dedicate it to our nurses who are there for us when we need them most. With my thanks to you both, Larry Marcell.”

There are a couple video clips available showing the statue:  Video 1   Video 2
