CHI Saint Joseph Health
At CHI Saint Joseph Health, we are called to serve. Below, our employees share with us how they live out this call to service and the reasons why.
“I felt drawn to help those in need. I'm grateful for the ability and the opportunity to improve someone's health or comfort families who are grieving. There will always be people that have mental and physical needs – I get a great deal of satisfaction seeing that my efforts have helped those that need it.” – Annie Campbell, Stroke & Chest Pain Coordinator, Saint Joseph Mount Sterling
“Coming to work each day, you are challenged with many tasks that in the end help someone. The example you set in your community is an example of what kind of person you are. How you treat people is an example of what type of person you are.” – John Feltner, EVS, Saint Joseph London
“I want to give back to my community and show compassionate care that patients deserve. We see very nervous and sick patients, so they appreciate a calm person with a smile and a hug, just to let them know someone cares. We treat our patients like family. God has called us to serve those in need.” – Rhonda Carl, Cardiovascular Services and Nuclear Medicine, Saint Joseph Berea
“Getting up and coming to work, knowing that I play a big role in caring for patient and family, motivates me every day. God has chosen me to serve to witness. We all are here to serve and help patients heal.” – Joyce Gray, Environmental Services, Saint Joseph Hospital
“Knowing my patients are depending on me to help fight their battle with cancer, motivates me each and every day. I treat every being that I come into contact with as a sacred entity. CHI Saint Joseph Health puts patients first!” – Jana Jones, Radiation Therapist, CHI Saint Joseph Health – Cancer Care Center at Flaget Memorial Hospital
“I enjoy taking care of our patients in our small town. I know many of them personally and want to give them the care they deserve on a personal level. We are faith-based and try to be an extension of what God would want us to be.” – Shelly Sanders, APRN, Hem/Onc, Saint Joseph Mount Sterling
“I have always enjoyed helping and serving others. Health care was a natural choice for me. My motivation comes from ensuring each of our employees has the knowledge and skills they need to take exemplary care of the patients we serve.” – Jody Brown, MSN, RN-BC, Education, Saint Joseph London
“I love my job and the people. I love feeling like I'm making a positive difference at Saint Joseph Berea and in the Berea community. I'm always ready and willing to help in any way possible. CHI Saint Joseph Health is a place filled with compassion and love for anyone involved, from patients to employees as well as community.” – Kathy Maggard, Inventory Tech, Supply Chain, Saint Joseph Berea
“I like the thought that I make a difference in people's lives. The equipment I keep running allows doctors to diagnose and better do their jobs. We are a great team who cares about our patients and only want the best for them.” – Dan Cutshall, Clinical Engineering, Saint Joseph Hospital
“Each day I am excited to see how I can use the gifts God has given me to help others. It is a personal mission. Whether it's a patient or my coworkers, I have always loved to help people. It is an honor to work for an organization that allows you on a daily basis to use your God-given gifts to help people heal. I really love the fact we are carrying on the mission work of the Catholic nuns, with the ultimate goal of caring for the sick.” – Amanda Jean Thompson, PharmD, Pharmacy, Flaget Memorial Hospital
“I love to work with people and I love learning about the human body. I get the opportunity to help people who are in pain and/or sick get back to how they were moving and functioning before this difficult time.” – Katherine Perkins, PT, Rehab, Saint Joseph Mount Sterling
