Welcome to Nursing at St. Patrick Hospital
Nurses at St. Patrick Hospital strive to maintain and improve upon our culture of excellence and living our Mission. The nurses are engaged in shared governance in order to continue to review and apply the evidence to improve our processes and patient outcomes.
The success of this collaboration is demonstrated in our clinical quality nurse sensitive quality outcome measures. Our patient satisfaction scores and notes from our patients and families demonstrate this to us. This is also demonstrated in our Magnet designation, obtained in 2013.
Each day as I walk the halls of the hospital, I see the dedication and compassion provided by our nurses. I hear the stories from the nurses about the rewarding care they deliver and the professional commitment they display. When I am out in our community, I am frequently approached by people who have received care or a family member has and they remind me of their trust in our nurses and they care they delivered.
I am very proud of our nursing community and am humbled to have the opportunity to lead this amazing group of nursing professionals. Please join us by looking through these pages about nursing at St. Patrick Hospital.
