Thanks for working here Thursday:  Carlos C. DeLaRosa, CNA, CCH Home Health and Hospice

Campbell County Health is proud of its employees, and we want the CCH family and the Campbell County community to know about the good work that they do for this organization.

Say hello to Carlos C. De La Rosa, a certified nursing assistant (CNA) who works at CCH Home Health and Hospice. Carlos has worked in health care as a CNA for more than 30 years—and for the last five years he’s been with CCH also working in Behavioral Health Services, Dialysis Center, Emergency Department, Intensive Care and Medical/Surgical units. For those who don't know, CNAs are critical members of our team. They fill a gap between patients and nurses. They help put patients at ease, check and record vital signs, ask them about their conditions, and create and maintain records, among many other tasks.

Carlos De La Rosa CNA Hospice

Some of you may recognize him from our CNA campaign that we ran in 2016. Carlos became a CNA to "change his life for the better and to help others," something we hear often of those who choose a life-path in health care.

According to Home Health and Hospice Director Ashley Fraser, RN, CHPN, “Carlos is an ‘out of the box’ thinker, always willing to look at options to advocate for his patient’s needs. Carlos is an exceptionally hard worker, who maintains an upbeat and positive approach to patient care, even in the most challenging situations.”

Other colleagues have this to say about Carlos:

“Carlos is willing to help whenever and wherever is needed,” says Hollie Lynde, RN, Home Health and Hospice. “He is dedicated to his job and patients in all aspects of care. Carlos is good at finding solutions to concerns that have not become problems yet—he is very proactive!”

“Carlos truly goes above and beyond in his patient care as well as being a resource to his co-workers,” says Jennifer Miller, RN, Home Health and Hospice. “Carlos puts his patient’s at ease with his skill and humor.”

Carlos calls Dr. Chuck Franklin his healthcare hero because, “He is a genuine person in his professional life and his home life. He’s a ‘what you see is what you get’ kind of a person. He is a kind and caring person all the time.”

Outside of work, Carlos enjoys spending quality time with his family, as well as fishing.

We asked Carlos what he likes most about working for CCH, and what excellence every day means to him. Check out his response:

“I’m proud to work for CCH and Home Health and Hospice because we do a lot of good work here. I work with some amazing people. Here, I know that my opinion matters, and that I am an important part of this team.

Excellence every day means that I’m doing my absolute best for everyone—my patients, my colleagues and leadership. I’m so thankful for all of the opportunities that CCH has given me.”

Carlos, we are quite thankful for you, too. Thanks for being such an amazing part of our team. We appreciate you.
