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!

Meet Desiree:

Desiree has worked as an RN for 30+ years with her career beginning as a medical surgical nurse. She went to work at San Dimas Community Hospital in 1990 as a medical surgical nurse. SDCH has always encouraged her growth as a nurse, thus she has crossed trained to telemetry, ICU, GI lab, OB post-partum, and case management. She was a charge nurse for med/surg telemetry for many years and loved it! Desiree transitioned to case management in 2004 and has “never looked back!” She loves working with patients, family, physicians, and their community vendors. SDCH is located in a warm and family-oriented community, and she is so proud and grateful to be part of this community.

San Dimas Community Hospital has grown to a 101 bed facility over the years, and offers many resources to our community. As case management director, Desiree sees great teamwork throughout the hospital. Their case management department utilizes many different care-giving agencies and vendors. Through her own personal family need, she urgently needed a caregiver for her family member. She called Donna at Care 4 You, and she quickly connected her to a caregiver. All was promptly handled very professionally. Desiree deals with these situations on a daily basis at work, and she says that she was truly impressed with all of Care4You’s staff. Having this personal experience with non-medical caregivers has really stressed to Desiree the importance of what her case management team does for families at SDCH.

San Dimas Community Hospital is her home away from home, and Desiree looks forward to many more years assisting her patients and families transition through their care while they are part of the SDCH family during their hospitalization.
