A letter from Chris
Welcome to the Saint Joseph Health Nursing Website. We at Saint Joseph have dedicated ourselves to providing the Highest Quality Patient Centered Care possible as well as providing our Nurses with the latest in information and tools in order to provide that care. The Website certainly gives us a way to share this information not only with our nurses but with all who access this Resource. Our nurses truly are the "Heart of Compassion."
One of the links on the site will allow you to review our Saint Joseph Health Nursing Annual Reports. This report highlights many examples of our nurses' devotion to providing an outstanding patient care experience. The Annual Report details stories of how our clinicians keep patients and families in the center of everything they do; and how our nurses readily embrace the latest technology and the resultant benefits associated with evidence-based practices. This report provides accounts of our nurses' willingness to extend compassion beyond the doors of all of the Saint Joseph Health Facilities to touch the lives of members of the community.
As the Chief Nursing Executive for Saint Joseph Hospital and Saint Joseph East, I am so impressed by the innovative approaches to patient care delivery across our varied patient care units. Leadership in Nursing is about transforming care at the bedside to make a difference for our patients.
I began my career at Saint Joseph Hospital in 1978 as a staff nurse in the ICU, and I have seen our tradition of excellence in nursing grow stronger over the years. I am proud and honored to be a part of this rich tradition and sincerely thank our team of men and women who continue that tradition today. Our nursing team continues to contribute to the mission and vision of Catholic Health Initiatives and Saint Joseph Health, through their commitment to our core values of Reverence, Integrity, Compassion and Excellence. The outstanding reputation of compassion for which Saint Joseph is known can be directly attributable to those clinicians who work at the bedside of our patients. It is because of them that our organization continues to be successful.
As you explore the Saint Joseph Health Sytem Nursing Website my hope is that you will get a glimpse of our nursing excellence, be challenged to reach higher in your own nursing quest, and encourage those around you to do the same.
