Ilyne is a great example of the compassionate care available at Dignity Health as she specifically serves the San Fernando valley each day. At the beginning of the pandemic, Ilyne was instrumental in volunteering to tend to the ICU patients battling COVID-19 – even when little was known about the disease. Her bravery in working with this patient population eased patient and staff concerns and anxiety around the new disease. As part of the Respiratory Therapy team, Ilyne remains greatly involved in the fight against COVID-19 and her dedication to patient care is greatly appreciated.
