I’ve grown up with St. Mary Mercy Hospital. As a child and young adult, I lived with my family just across the street from the Hospital. It seems like only yesterday that I began in my first official role at the Hospital — a volunteer my senior year of high school. Three years later, I applied for the job of “orderly” in the ER on the midnight shift — that job put me through medical school. I’ve spent nearly my entire medical career here in St. Mary Mercy’s ER.
That’s why I’m so passionate about the quality of care that my staff and I provide to the patients we serve. And, that’s why I’m honored to have a leadership role in the St. Mary Mercy Livonia Generations Together Campaign.
At St. Mary Mercy, we have treated nearly ten generations and counting, and it’s not uncommon for staff and physicians to have family members who have also served or who are serving at the hospital. In my case it’s my mom who works here. And, it’s the patients of all ages who I see in the ER, many of whom I will see more than once over a lifetime whether they need emergency care for themselves or a loved one.
The trust of our patients throughout the decades, the ongoing commitment and generosity of our community and the caring dedication of our staff — the St. Mary Mercy family — is what the Generations Together Campaign is all about. It’s about generations coming together, knowing that we are building something that will make a difference today and benefit patients for decades to come.
