Stories of Success

When Iwona came to the Hospital for Special Care as a CNA, she took every opportunity to learn more from her patients and her co-workers and she has been able to grow personally and professionally. Now she provides that same education and support she received to others as a CNA mentor. The support, coaching and compassion she shares with her team members strengthens the entire staff and makes very day a great day. Being part of a strong team is what helps HFSC patients and staff alike “feel like part of the family here.”

Stories of Success

Despite a family legacy in the health care field, Leo hadn’t initially planned on being a nurse. A volunteer opportunity to work with patients at Hospital for Special Care changed his perspective and he knew he had found his calling. He went back to school and became a floor nurse. His natural curiosity, love of learning and eagerness to help others grow stood out and Leo quickly moved into the role of clinical manager. Support, guidance and encouragement from colleagues, not to mention his patients, keep him feeling inspired. The hospital’s tuition reimbursement program and clinical ladders professional development approach help him as he continues to advance his training. “I have so many opportunities to learn here, from so many different people and I try to give that back as much as I can.”
