DALTON, Ga.– Jannie Jividen, RN, recently retired after 35 years working at Hamilton Medical Center (HMC). A reception was held at HMC in her honor.

“Jannie has been a dedicated Hamilton nurse,” said Jennie Banks, RN, Critical Care director. “When we attended the RN program together, I was amazed that Jannie was able to manage to attend school and work two 16-hour shifts each weekend. Her dedication is to be commended.”

Jividen began her employment at Hamilton as a nursing assistant. She received her LPN credentials in 1979 and RN credentials in 1986. She has served in Quality Improvement and, most recently, in HMC’s Surgical Intensive Care Unit (SICU).
