Passion Driven EmployeeTeam / Staff
Healing Care Hospice would like to acknowledge Bryan Campuzano as this month’s Passion Driven Employee for his extraordinary efforts as a Home Health Aid (HHA). Bryan exemplifies Healing Care’s values of love, compassion, putting our patient’s first, and continuous learning and improvement.
Born and raised in South Central Los Angeles, Bryan originally wanted to be a lot of things such as a police officer, veterinarian, homicide detective, professional singer, or a surgeon. He had never planned on becoming a HHA.
Bryan went to college and graduated with a degree as a surgical tech. He spent many hours assisting surgeons in the ER; however, it was an extremely stressful position. One day, he decided that he no longer wanted to stress his mind and body in the emergency room and made the decision to change his path so that he could focus on his passion – helping people.
“Although I did not choose to continue being a surgical tech, I still felt like I could do purposeful work helping people as an HHA.”
Soon thereafter, Bryan began working with the intellectually disabled. Although he thoroughly enjoyed working with these individuals, the pay was not sustainable. From there, Bryan was advised to look into a career as a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA).
Upon completing his CNA program, Bryan found himself with many job offers. He worked as a CNA for 5 years until the work began taking a toll on his mind and body. One night, Bryan prayed that he would find a career that would help fulfill his passion, while also allowing him to be financially stable. Three days later, he was hired at Healing Care Hospice.
“Working at Healing Care Hospice has given me the opportunity to help others and truly feel like I am doing what I was meant to do here on Earth.”
Since beginning work at HCH, Bryan has the time and energy to take part in his favorite hobbies. In his free time, he enjoys reading, hiking, running, doing Crossfit, attending church, spending time with loved ones, playing video games and singing at convalescent homes.
In the future, Bryan hopes to further his education and become a registered nurse.
