Op-Ed Post Employee Forums
A new year always brings with it a promise of new beginnings and a fresh look at our opportunities to grow and change. I recently met with St. James Mercy Hospital employees regarding the year behind us and what I expect the year ahead will bring. I want to share with you—our community—the same insights. 2014 brought to our community regional collaborators such as Noyes Memorial Hospital, Oak Orchard Health, and Jones Memorial Hospital, providers who researched whether their expertise would be a good fit for our community. This year—2015—will bring significant change to St. James Mercy.
