HCA Healthcare Heroes: Robin on the Roof

Robin Evans-Hanson named her annual charity drive “Robin on the Roof” for obvious reasons – it’s her name. But that wasn’t the only motivation behind the outreach identity. The 33-year registered nurse at HCA Healthcare’s Medical City Fort Worth believes anyone can be a robin. Even you.

“Robins signify the first sign of spring. It’s a new beginning for everyone,” Evans said. “On the roof, you’re out of your situation or crisis and can see everything more clearly. You are not alone.”

Robin believes that as a nurse she needs to be involved in the community. “That’s where the real nursing starts,” she says.

So, every summer, Robin sits on a rooftop to raise awareness, food and funds for food pantries in the North Texas area. She doesn’t come down until she’s met her mark.

In June, Robin, a two-time Fort Worth Business Press Healthcare Hero, will return to the roof where it all started eight years ago and set her largest goal yet – 150,000 pounds of food.

As National Nurses Week comes to a close, we’re proud to introduce our newest HCA Healthcare Hero – Robin Evans-Hanson, a registered nurse and neuroscience clinical educator at Medical City Fort Worth, for her heart of service for families in need in her community.
