Community and Opportunity with a Purpose
You are a caregiver. Every day you give care by acting in the best interest of someone else. Caring for your patients—making a difference—is central to who you are as nurse and caregiver. For those who choose a St. Joseph’s nursing career, they find a community that offers opportunity and something more: a purpose that empowers and fulfills.
A Higher Level of Care
A Higher Level of Care is more than just a tagline. It is a fundamental belief that guides clinical decisions at the bedside and throughout St. Joseph’s system of care. St. Joseph’s Hospital Health Center has always connected with employees and those we serve through strong foundational relationships. Grounded in our Franciscan tradition and values, we are about being Passionate Healers Dedicated to Honoring the Sacred in our Sisters and Brothers.
Shared governance allows our caregiver voices to be heard in matters concerning clinical practice, policies, procedures and much more. Through the Unit Practice Councils and Clinical Practice Council, we promote collegial and professional autonomy and collaboration. Decision-making becomes shared by those closest to the patient and family, or where the work gets done.
All nursing leaders convey a strong sense of advocacy and support on behalf of staff and patients. State-of-the-art technology, a nursing education specialist and a variety of educational systems support patient care and staff learning. An electronic health record, with clinical decision support, aids care planning and documentation.
