Care for the Common Good

September 30th, 2020 // Saint Agnes in the Community

More than any public health event in our nation’s history, COVID-19 has made clear that our health care delivery system is failing to meet the needs of all people. We believe that everyone has the right to a standard of living that promotes health and well-being in all areas of life, including access to food, clothing, stable housing, medical care and critical social services, regardless of socioeconomic factors. That’s why Saint Agnes has joined Care for the Common Good – a health advocacy initiative, created by Trinity Health, that seeks to make affordable and accessible health care possible for everyone in our country.

Don’t miss a chance at R&R

September 30th, 2020 // Around the Medical Center

Coping with normal day-to-day stress in our personal and professional lives is tough enough.

If you’re feeling overwhelmed, anxious or depressed, or just need a safe place to vent, join your colleagues for Resilience and Renewal (R&R). Unfortunately, attendance during our first week of R&R was very low. We don’t want to lose this important resource, so if you’re able, please make time to attend a session this week.
