Above. Beyond. Because.
St. Vincent’s attracts associates who don’t consider their work a job. Instead, many of us view it as a calling. And it’s not just the physicians and nurses who feel this way. There is a spirit of caring and compassion from all of our associates. We treat each other like family and do the same for our patients and visitors.
Our patients frequently call our caregivers angels and saints. The incredible stories below detail amazing selfless acts of kindness. In one instance, a nurse moved mountains to help a dying patient say goodbye to his dogs. In another, a nurse fed a patient’s soul after making a trip offsite to purchase the man’s favorite meal. One man was so grateful for the care his mother received, he asked us to put the nurse on all of our billboards as “St. Marvelous.” A somewhat outlandish request turned into reality.
We are proud to introduce some of the real life saints that make St. Vincent’s so great.
