Caroline Johnson and family

The Rockdale Citizen and Newton Citizen are shining a spotlight on the Hospital Heroes at Piedmont Rockdale and Piedmont Newton hospitals who are giving their all to provide a high level of essential health care services during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

In this edition, we are honoring Caroline Johnson, ICU clinical manager, at Piedmont Newton Hospital. Here's what makes her a Hospital Hero:

Caroline Johnson is the clinical manager for the ICU at Piedmont Newton Hospital. Over the years, but especially over the past two years, Caroline has been a true leader. During this difficult time, Caroline has made every effort to support the hospital, staff, patients and families with care, compassion and her wealth of knowledge, even when the patients were not located in the ICU. She has led the charge with procedure and policy changes that needed to be made with COVID patients. Caroline has consistently provided support throughout the hospital and has even been the interim Emergency Department director and opened a new IMCU unit. Caroline is a hospital hero.
