Congratulations to Whitney Watson, BSN, RN, Infection Preventionist at Parkwest Medical Center for earning her certification in Infection Prevention and Control (CIC®) from the Certification Board of Infection Control and Epidemiology, Inc.
Obtaining the CIC® credential shows a commitment to best practices in infection prevention and control and improved patient care. More than 2,000 infection preventionists and other health professionals certify or re-certify each year.
Infection Preventionists are experts on methods of preventing and controlling the spread of infectious diseases, typically within a specific population—the patients, staff, and visitors at a hospital or other health care setting. Their work also helps reduce the risk of contagious diseases being carried out into the community.
We are so proud of Whitney and how this certification will help her serve our patients and put them first. Want to be a part of a company that pursues excellence in everything that we do? Click here to view open positions at Parkwest Medical Center today!
