Hoag Selects Nurse of the Year

Candi Rogers, an oncology nurse, is named Hoag Hospital's Nurse of the Year.

She has worked at Hoag Hospital for 13 years, and this week Candi Rogers was named as the hospital's Nurse of the Year.

Rogers is an oncology charge nurse who volunteers with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and is a member of the Oncology Nursing Society. At Thursday's annual Nurses Day event, Rick Martin, the hospital's chief nursing officer and senior vice-president, described Rogers as going above the call of duty and being one of Hoag's "rockstars."

“Candi has demonstrated the qualities and essence of what it truly means to be a Hoag nurse with her responsiveness, thoughtfulness and caring nature," Martin said. "She is a stellar example of the quality of nurses we are proud to have at Hoag.”

Hospital officials said Roger's peers describe her as “a true role model who leads by example and inspires others.”

Rogers graciously accepted her award saying, “I am lucky to be a part of this exemplary team at Hoag."

As a retired RN I am so pleased to hear there are still nurses who love their work and go above the call of duty. Nurses like Candi give with their hearts, there is no amount of money that can buy that for a patient. Candi, congrats to you and may God bless the work you are doing, keep up the good work!
