Dedication, professionalism, high standards, perfection and compassion are just a few words to describe Suzanne Irwin, RN who will be retiring from the Hooverwood family in January.
Suzanne has had a long and proud career at Hooverwood. Beginning in 1983, Suzanne was a staff nurse, staff development coordinator and infection prevention coordinator. She was also the nursing instructor for our CNA and QMA certification classes. Many of the brightest and best employees in our nursing department today were Suzanne’s students over the years.
Suzanne left the organization in 1993 to pursue other career goals but returned to Hooverwood in 2002 as the staff development and infection prevention coordinator. Then in 2009, she further enhanced her education and training by becoming a certified MDS/clinical assessment nurse.
The Hooverwood family will greatly miss Suzanne’s energy, enthusiasm and wealth of knowledge. We wish her the very best of happiness and health as she enjoys her retirement with her husband, children and grandchildren. We thank Suzanne for making a difference in the lives of our residents.
