//The Medical Center of Dimmitt Spotlight: Carole Hopson

Castro County Hospital District (CCHD) strives in providing you comfort during your visits to the Medical Center of Dimmitt because it is not only someone helping you, but it is a familiar face, it is family.

Carole Hopson, LVN (Licensed Practical Nurse) started working for Plains Memorial Hospital in 1981 as a ward clerk. She then went on to receive her CAN (Certified Nursing Assistant) before being encouraged to get her LVN in 1985.

“It was in 1977 when I delivered my first child at Plains Memorial Hospital that I was inspired to become a nurse,” said Hopson. “It was because of the care that I received from the great nurses at the hospital.”

Hopson attended the last graduating class at Plains Memorial Hospital with nursing instructor, A’llan Bradley. She attended the school to not only better herself but to help her family.

Over thirty years ago, Hopson started working with Gary Hardee, M.D. at his new clinic and is still with him till this day. Then about 10 years later Dr. Hardee and Hopson joined the Medical Center or Dimmitt.

“The hospital and clinic have been a very special part of my life over the past 40 years,” said Hopson. “I was able to start my career here and it has become my second home.”

Castro County Hospital District is pleased to have such wonderful and dedicated nurses like Hopson, that help provide care and serve the Castro County community. We are the people you know, we are family, and we care.
