VALE – Corey Crismon realized he picked the right career during a flood in Hawaii.

Crismon, now the new administrator at Pioneer Place, was then in charge of an Ohana Pacific Health center on the island of Maui when flood waters threatened in the spring of 2019 and he was suddenly forced to move residents out.

Crismon called the episode “probably the No. 1 most significant moment” in his career.

“We had to move all the residents to a sister facility. The whole community worked cohesively with our team and we evacuated the residents in record time and kept everyone safe. That’s when I knew I chose the right career,” said Crismon.
