Spokane Shriners Hospital Welcomes New Director of Patient Care Services
The Spokane Shriners Hospital is pleased to introduce Director of Patient Care Services & Nurse Executive Derrek Hidalgo, MBA, BSN. Derrek joins the organization from MultiCare Deaconess, where he served as the director of critical care services. Prior, Derrek held the position of director of patient care services at Loma Linda University Medical Center.
Derrek earned his Bachelor of Science Nursing from Pacific Union College, and his Master of Business Administration from Loma Linda University. Post-graduation, Derrek spent years working in intensive care units and holding various health care leadership roles. He even spent some time working in finance.
