Imagine you or a loved one visited our emergency room and were admitted to the hospital. You are uncertain and afraid. In comes a nurse. She not only gives you something for pain, but she stays and talks with you to give you comfort and to ease your worries. You can tell she cares about your health and asks about your family. She stops in to see you often, with a welcoming smile and encouraging words.
Patients and their families come to our hospital everyday anxious and afraid hoping to find a friendly face to help, reassure, and heal them. Here, at St. Joseph’s, they will find that comfort and care from our nurses as well as our physicians and devoted clinical and administrative staff in state-of-the-art facilities.
Our nurses go above and beyond the call of duty to help the patients they care for each and every day. It is because of their dedication and hard work that they have been recognized three times by the American Nurses Credentialing Center as the recipients of the esteemed Magnet Award for Nursing Excellence, the most prestigious designation in the profession.
From pediatric to geriatric to emergency care our dedicated and devoted nursing teams specialize in a variety of specialty areas with compassion and professionalism in a patient-centered environment. Many of our nurses go on to become staff nurses, nurse educators and nurse researchers and continue to play a vital role in delivering excellent patient care.
We are proud of our professional nursing team of more than 600 nurses with a rare, less than one percent hiring vacancy rate. Our nurses take pride in their commitment to our patients – where patient care is their number one priority.
