Erwin B. Ceniza, RN
Staff and Charge Nurse
NYC Health + Hospitals/Jacobi

A 27-year veteran of NYC Health + Hospitals/Jacobi, Erwin Ceniza has been a staff nurse, charge nurse and, since 2016, a staff member focused on organizational systems to improve performance.

The hospital’s chief nursing officer says that Ceniza “is willing to do anything and everything to help strengthen the nursing department.” For his part, Ceniza sees himself as “a diligent advocate providing a voice for patients.”

Ceniza’s duties include evaluating clinical care services and administrative operations, implementing patient-care protocols and directing clinical training. His work helped Jacobi earn recognition this year for a “Get with the Guidelines-Resuscitation” award from the American Heart Association – a first for the hospital.

Educated and trained in the Philippines, Ceniza came to New York and joined Jacobi in 1992. He’s been the recipient of a variety of honors through the years, including a Nurse of Distinction award, an Outstanding Performance award and recognition for providing best quality of care in emergency/trauma/critical care services.

“To be a person of integrity is to stand for something, even if that stance comes at a cost,” Ceniza says. “In order to understand patients and staff, I always take a moment to think and put myself in their shoes.”
