Charleston Hometown Heroes

❤️ Thank you, Tina Evangelista, for being a Charleston “Hometown Hero”! ❤️⁠ ⁠

“Tina is a nurse at our local hospital here at the Medical University of South Carolina who focuses a lot in the ICU and recently took on a new challenge of running ECMO. Tina is one of the most positive, caring, funny, and powerful women you could ever hope to meet. Even after the most hellish of days, she always finds some ray of positivity and happiness from it all.⁠ ⁠

Tina has been on the front lines of this coronavirus, working about 6 days a week at the hospital. She has shared with me the struggles they have faced as a hospital and all of the wonderful things that the hospital is doing to prevent contamination as much as possible.⁠ ⁠

Tina always puts others first so I would like to flip the script and have her come first and be recognized for once!”⁠ ⁠

PPHG Event Manager Carly surprised Tina with her marquee message this morning and we hope she gets to enjoy her wine and treats from the PPHG culinary team on her much-deserved DAY OFF!⁠ ⁠
