The Compassus program serving Orange County and the surrounding areas is proud to recognize Freddie Gomez during National Nursing Assistants Week June 15-22 for providing the highest level of quality hospice care for patients and their families.

“We are proud to recognize Freddie for his tireless efforts to provide our patients and their families with superior care that goes beyond fulfilling their medical and emotional needs, delivering a more meaningful end-of-life experience for our patients,” said Gina Andres, executive director for Compassus – Orange County. “Freddie’s positive and caring attitude, exceptional ability to understand and comfort patients and willingness to support colleagues makes him an integral part of the care we provide. We are extremely fortunate to have him on the Compassus team.”

Nursing assistants provide as much as 90 percent of the direct long-term care delivered in the U.S., interacting daily with an array of personalities, cultures, abilities and disabilities in nursing homes, home care, hospice, assisted living and other long term care settings.

Compassus – Orange County will recognize other local nursing assistants during National Nursing Assistants Week by presenting them with framed certificates of appreciation for their dedication to the patients and families they serve.
