Louis Cortes, Coordinator Trauma Injury Prevention:
“The expectation for any administration to recognize an excellent employee is taken a step further at St. Joseph’s. The practice of giving a N.I.F.T.Y. (nice individual friendly thank you) award to an employee from any employee, regardless of role, acknowledges the recognition of all employees. A N.I.F.T.Y. award recipient would be recognized again as the person receives a small prize, has their name posted on a bulletin board, updated monthly and has the certificate placed in their personnel file. Our mission, vision and core values of dignity, justice, stewardship and excellence provide guidance to what is the expectation. The common visible posting of our core values throughout the organization serve as a constant reminder of the culture of St. Joseph’s. The uniqueness of our Center for Education provides all employees with the necessary particular level of learning ideal for the diverse job roles. Training for new programs and software are completed in phases as not to overwhelm the employee. Support is available 24 hours from trained champions on nearly all areas throughout the organization to computerized icons with available resources just a click away.
The current changes in healthcare shadows uncertainty for most healthcare workers everywhere who may consequently be challenged and ask, “What if the hospital closes and I lose my job?” Remaining attuned to these changes is what the administration at St. Joseph’s has exemplified for the last 18 years since I began working here. Indeed, change would be inevitable and the reward for working at St. Joseph’s is as the organization moves forward, so does the employee. I am never stagnant and always up to the challenge, with St. Joseph’s at my side I can achieve my professional goals. Often co-workers exercise reliability during times of urgency but at St. Joseph’s, reliability of co-workers is seen on a day to day routine basis. Getting the job done correctly and efficiently the first time would be a goal for countless of our co-workers. The collaboration and multidisciplinary approach amid co-workers validates our exceptionality.”
Lorna Rouse, Certified Nursing Assistant, St. Vincent’s Nursing Home:
“My co-workers are always there to help when a situation arises. When employees do some good or go beyond the call of duty, to make residents or family members comfortable, St. Joseph’s always gives NIFTYs to the workers. We value the values and cultures of employees and patients. We support each other when there are new ideas and then we are given the training required so we can work better for the good of those people we care for. I always see that we do the best we can for everybody we come in contact with. We give each other that helping hand. The workers are recognized at several different ongoing programs and this year I was a nominee at the Employee of the Year celebration.”
Monica Maguire, Coordinator Employee Health:
“I am always given the training and tools I need to get the job done. New systems are not put in place until everyone receives extensive training. The resources here at St. Joseph’s are amazing. They set the standard for other healthcare institutions to follow. The hospital here at Wayne has evolved and grown over the years, which has kept my position and day to day activities challenging. You are never bored. There is always something new to be learned or done. All the people I work with here at Wayne have a positive attitude and make coming to work a pleasant experience. Everyone here gives 100% of themselves to their patients. Management is a visible presence and easily approachable. St. Joseph’s Healthcare System truly values their employees. Individuals are recognized annually for years of service. In addition, we have barbecues and ice cream socials. We are provided with as choice of superb benefits and generous BTB time. I would recommend St. Joseph’s to anyone who wants to work for a great hospital with outstanding core values. St. Joseph’s has never lost sight of its original mission.”
