MEDFORD, Ore. -- Providence Medford Medical Center is celebrating its nurses and caregivers this week. 

The hospital presented two nurses awards Wednesday. Susan Brault received the 'Distinguished RN Award' for taking exceptional care of patients. Co-workers said Brault routinely works extra shifts and is a team player who cares about her peers.

Michelle Peters received the 'Distinguished CNA Award' for setting a gold standard for CNA care. Her co-workers said she always listens to them and makes sure their needs are met. Patients and fellow caregivers said Peters provides compassionate care and has a positive attitude. 

The hospital also gave away free tacos to all caregivers Wednesday to show appreciation. 

4-year Registered Nurse Phil Guidotti said he loves his job, and it's very different from a lot of other careers.

"A lot of jobs don't have people depending on you all the time, like at any moment in my job people might be asking me for something very serious, very important and I have to be ready to jump whenever they need me,' Guidotti said. 

The hospital also held a nurse lectureship Wednesday about compassion during a crisis. Peters and Brault were presented with their awards at the lectureship.
