I love taking care of people to help them know they are not alone. – Amy Coop, RN, Saint Joseph East
For KentuckyOne employees, taking care of patients is priority one. This inspiring comment, taken from one of the video interviews conducted as part of the KentuckyOne Purpose & Values Tour at Saint Joseph East, truly shines a light on the core values of Reverence, Integrity, Compassion and Excellence. (Watch the videos below.)
It’s all part of the Purpose & Values Tour, a systemwide celebration of the Purpose & Values that unite KentuckyOne. The tour gives employee-volunteers the chance to talk with one another about what is meaningful to them about their work.
The Purpose & Values Tour’s recent stops have included Saint Joseph Hospital, Saint Joseph East, Saint Joseph Jessamine, Saint Joseph Martin, Saint Joseph London and Flaget Memorial Hospital.
Next on the tour for early November is Jewish Hospital Shelbyville, Jewish Hospital Medical Center South/Southwest and Jewish Hospital Medical Center East/Northeast. Mission leaders are seeking employee-volunteers to star in the short videos recorded at every stop.
Facilities are using the Purpose & Values Tour as a springboard for planning other events and activities celebrating employees and focusing on our commitment to “bring wellness, healing and hope to all.”
Stay tuned to KentuckyOne This Week and KentuckyOne Online for more stories and videos from across the state.
