Proud to be a Part of the Team
Here are some of the top reasons our nurses are proud to be a part of our Los Robles Hospital & Medical Center Team.
Kim Thompson, RN
Critical Care Staff Educator
“This is the community I live in! This is where my family and friends come when they need help. I want to be here to assist them through the healthcare process. Los Robles is a state-of-the-art facility. I want to be part of the excellent care that Los Robles provides. In my role as critical care educator, I am able to facilitate the training of the staff, so that they are able to provide best evidence based practice to the patients. I stay at Los Robles so that I can be a part of the advances that the hospital makes each and every year. I stay here so I can help the staff grow... like others helped me.
I bought a house in Thousand Oaks in 1993. I had been commuting an hour to Santa Monica to work the night shift at Saint John's Health Center. I knew when the 1994 Northridge earthquake hit Saint John's Health Center in Santa Monica that my life would change forever. It was a very scary time, to be suddenly unemployed along with all of the other staff at Saint John's. At the time, I did not know I would find a home here at Los Robles, where I have been for the past 19 years. The staff here welcomed me with open arms. I was given the opportunity to grow, to be a part of committees and to have a voice in changes that were made. As I worked here, I watched people take chances and try different jobs. It took a long time before I had the courage to step away from the bedside to a different role, but with the encouragement of fellow employees and management I took that step!
I love coming to work every day, where it's always something different. I am very grateful to the people who have helped and inspired me... some are still here and others have moved on to other challenges.
The staff at Los Robles inspires me to work harder, to accomplish more, to never let go of the end goal...providing the very best care we can for each and every patient. That's why I am a nurse at Los Robles Hospital. I have been here for almost 20 years, and plan on being here another 20 years!”
Christine Sood, RN
“I live in Thousand Oaks and I care about my community. I became a nurse 30 years ago as a vocation to help others. Caring really is my calling.”
Erica Rosa, RN, PHN, BSN, CEN, MICN
Trauma Program Manager
“You should be a nurse at Los Robles because it is evident each day that we employ the best quality of nurses, who work as a team to provide the best care to all patients. Los Robles feels like a family...and this family wants to see each member grow as clinical nurses or as a nurse leader. This is why I like working here.”
Priscilla Eaton, BSN, MA, RN, CCRN
“You should want to be a nurse at Los Robles Hospital because it is a nice hospital with state-of-the-art equipment.
