Hermalinda is an integral part of California Hospital Medical Center in Los Angeles. As part of the Environmental Services team, she takes care of the overall cleanliness and care of the facility with all of the patients in mind. Her courage and compassion for all of her patients and staff members has been admirable.
During the COVID pandemic, Hermalinda even went out of her way in demonstrating humankindess by lending personal items to patients and interacting with COVID positive patients who were in quarantine. One such patient was the sole provider of his family and Hermalinda led food collection to provide food for the entire family while the patient was away. We are proud to honor Hermalinda as the Healthcare Hero of the Game due to her humankindness spirit and dedication to the local community.
