DESIREE HAWKINS, RN, CCM
It is our honor at Care4You, to have Desiree Hawkins as our Professional in the Spotlight! Thank you Desiree for everything you do for your patients, their families and the community that you serve!
“I have worked as an RN for 30+ years with my career beginning as a medical surgical nurse. I came to work at San Dimas Community Hospital in 1990 as a medical surgical nurse. SDCH has always encouraged my growth as a nurse, thus I have crossed trained to telemetry, ICU, GI lab, OB post-partum, and case management. I was charge nurse for med/surg telemetry for many years and loved it! I transitioned to case management in 2004 and have never looked back! I love working with patients, family, physicians, and our community vendors. SDCH is located in a warm and family-oriented community, and I am so proud and grateful to be part of this community.
San Dimas Community Hospital has grown to 101 bed facility over the years, and offers many resources to our community. As case management director, I see great teamwork throughout the hospital. Our case management department utilizes many different care-giving agencies and vendors. Through my own personal family need, I urgently needed a caregiver for my family member. I called Donna at Care 4 You, and she quickly connected me to a caregiver. All was promptly handled very professionally. I deal with these situations on a daily basis at work, and I must say, I was truly impressed with all of their staff. Having this personal experience with nonmedical caregivers has really stressed to me the importance of what my case management team does for families here at SDCH.
San Dimas Community Hospital is my home away from home, and I look forward to many more years assisting our patients and families transition through their care while they are part of our family during their hospitalization.”Desiree Hawkins, RN, CCM Director Case Management San Dimas Community Hospital 1350 West Covina Boulevard San Dimas, CA 91773 909-599-6811 Ext: 2628
