QNHCH Nursing Excellence Awards

The Queens Health System placeholder

Two nurses have been awarded Nursing Excellence awards at Queen’s North Hawai’i Community Hospital (QNHCH) as the nation celebrates National Nurses Week.

Cecilia Currier, a nurse in the Family Birthing Unit, was presented with the Nursing Excellence Award for New Knowledge, Innovations and Improvements.  Cece is described by her peers as, “a woman of action.”  Cece is committed to improving nursing processes and bringing education to the Family Birthing Unit. She has been a preceptor to new nurses and always advocates for what is best for patient care. Recently she was instrumental in acquiring better electronic fetal monitor bands for improved patient comfort.

Tobi Hoff, a nurse in the Medical-Surgical Unit, was presented with the Nursing Excellence Award for Mentorship and Professional Development.  Tobi is described as, “a very hard worker with a kind heart, willing to teach anybody and help her co-workers any way she can.”  As a nurse preceptor, Tobi displays patience and attention to detail, and combined with her warm personality, she gives the new nurses at QNHCH a great start.

“We had the privilege to review numerous compelling nominations describing the great work done by nurses at QNHCH,” said QNHCH President Cindy Kamikawa. “These Nurses of Excellence embody the QNHCH mission by always putting patients first and pursuing excellence in clinical, educational, leadership and service. These nurses demonstrate a commitment to providing the best possible care for every patient.”

“These two awardees represent over 100 talented nurses at QNHCH devoted to excellence in patient care. Presenting these awards allows us to illuminate the talent, passion and professionalism demonstrated in action by our nurses every day,” said Kamikawa.
