Mercy in Sacramento and Dignity Health are values driven organizations where I have enjoyed the privilege of working for the past 22 years.
Pros: values driven culture and colleagues/co-workers, strong leadership team, free flu shots, outreach that benefits healthy communities.

I have enjoyed the privilege of working for the Mercy hospitals in
Sacramento for the past 22+ years. At the highest levels of the organization, there are individuals and teams committed to the health of our community and that has resonated with my personal and professional values system throughout my tenure. I have worked for the finest of leaders who have been role models and mentors. I have learned the value of collaboration, stewardship and excellence. I have not had a typical day at work and that has agreed with me. The hardest part of the job has occurred when I am on call to handle media inquiries, wearing the 24-hour media pager, and in the middle of the night I receive a page from one of the hospitals notifying me that an accident has occurred, that there are fatalities and the injured have been taken to one or more our our hospitals. It's hard to go back to sleep knowing that individuals/families are in pain. The most enjoyable part of the job has been reaching our community members through health outreach, knowing that our team may have positively touched the health of our community, even in a small way.
