Creating a Healing Environment

Next week we officially celebrate the opening of our new surgical patient tower. The team spent many years researching the best design features, ensuring input from all our clinicians, and taking advantage of what our patients and families told us.

The result is numerous features that improve workflow for our colleagues, create a more healing environment for our patients, and an environmentally friendly, silver LEED-certified facility.

Our donors, especially the Nappi family, have blessed us with financial support to do the best job in creating this new environment for our community and region.

The Sister Mary Obrist Family Waiting Room is supported by hundreds of employees whose names will appear on the wonderful donor wall in that area. It is a room that reflects the priority we put on patients and their families.

Not everyone will be able to attend the opening, so we will be adding a video online for you to view the new facility. Watch for it on opening day, Sept. 4.

To the many people across the region whose patients come to St. Josephs for care, the Nappi Tower and the conversion to private rooms is essential for the future of health care. It emphasizes the importance of  infection control, family centered care and a healing environment in a patient's recovery. This past week we saw national news that confirmed our decisions.

Thank you to everyone from Trustees, research, design, construction, bond holders and caregivers for your support in making this special project come to life!
