The hospital can be a scary place for patients and families, but a kind word or gesture from a colleague can turn a negative experience into a life-changing one. This week, we want to shout out Emergency Department nurse, Nikki Hanson, for taking the time to support a family whose loved one had opted for comfort care following a stroke. Thank you, Nikki, for delivering exceptional patient care with compassion and dignity.

We’re proud of you, Joshua!

Parking is at a premium on the hospital campus, especially since welcoming visitors back. Hundreds of cars come and go all day long and it’s someone’s job to manage the traffic and make sure – first and foremost – that our patients have a place to park. That job belongs to Joshua Kuykendall and we couldn’t be more fortunate to have him on the Saint Agnes team. The next time you see him, be sure to say “thanks” for a job very well done!

A POWERful team

April 27th, 2022 // Kudos

On Monday evening, Saint Agnes experienced a temporary power loss due to a car accident that took down a primary PG&E power pole and transformer. Often, it isn’t until things go wrong that we can fully appreciate the people responsible for making them go right. Monday’s power loss was an important reminder of just how fortunate we are to have such a skilled and dedicated Plant Facilities team. We owe a debt of gratitude to these unsung heroes, so please, the next time you see them, extend your thanks.

We’re proud of you, Christopher!

April 20th, 2022 // Kudos

At Saint Agnes, we believe in the power of kindness, compassion, and dignity, but simple acts of kindness are often small and may go unnoticed. We want to change that by recognizing the little actions you take that make a huge difference for our patients, visitors and your fellow colleagues. Today, we want to recognize Christopher Hamberg, Guest Services Representative, for taking a few minutes out of his day to help a visitor connect with her sick family member.
