Cindy Drummond, RN

Emergency Department Nurse

Cindy Drummond, RN in Hilo Medical Center’s Emergency Department was nominated by Alan and Marilyn Barber. Here’s their nomination:

“Since I (Alan) was admitted to the hospital per cruise ship, my wife had remained with me in Hilo.  As she was a complete stranger in town and had no knowledge of the area whatsoever this could have proved a very daunting experience.

Come forth a ‘guardian angel’ in the form of Cindy, a nurse we met during my admission process. She befriended my wife, and offered immeasurable advice as well as taking her shopping, showing her around, taking her to meet some of her friends at an evening meal in town and then to top it all, took my wife on a long car journey taking in many sights across the island and swimming with dolphins.

Cindy is an exceptional ambassador to Hilo Medical Center and for the island community itself. My wife and I are truly grateful for the generosity and kindness.”

Please join us in congratulating Cindy! She is just one of the many 71 nurses who provide exceptional care in our Emergency Department that sees nearly 48,000 patients a year.
