Lobo celebrates 56 years of nursing

Ambrosio Roberto Lobo, known affectionately as simply "Lobo," celebrates 56 years in nursing this month.

Lobo began his career in Cuba, and continued when he immigrated to Key West with his family in 1969. He was hired immediately at DePoo Hospital, then on Southard Street.

In 1975, Lobo and his new wife, Clarita Rodriguez Lobo, moved to Miami, where Lobo worked at Victoria Hospital and then at Cedars when the two hospitals merged.

"Respect for the doctor; compassion fro the patient," was the philosophy Lobo learned from his father, who was also a nurse, and both men lived by it every day, states a press release.

Lobo and his wife have since returned to Key West, where they enjoy "all the benefits of Paradise and vow never to leave again."
