At today’s CHI St. Vincent, we offer a blend of tradition and forward thinking. As we focus on our ministry, we are encouraged by our rich spiritual heritage. Many of our nurses call CHI St. Vincent their home and their team family. As we look forward, we have established an empowering environment for CHI St. Vincent nurses where professional development is encouraged and supported.
Nurses at Catholic Health Initiatives (CHI) St. Vincent are ever aware of the commitment to Living Our Mission (LOM). We underpin our Values in Action through the principles of Reverence, Integrity, Compassion and Excellence (RICE). These principles serve as our foundation and power the relationships that help us “… to be a great place to work, a great place to practice medicine and a great place to receive excellent and compassionate care.”
Our relationship-based model of care aligns with the ongoing effort to grow and learn as we build a more diverse body of nursing professionals while celebrating the vast contribution of multigenerational nurses. CHI St. Vincent has a proud history of thriving and surviving in the midst of challenge and change, both known and unanticipated. At CHI St. Vincent, nursing professionals welcome change and embrace the mandate for continuous and bold innovation. Through innovation, we meet the commitment to serve the poor and vulnerable while we grow as professionals. We evidence that commitment each day – through education, practice and professional development.

The DAISY Award was established by the DAISY Foundation in memory of J. Patrick Barnes who died at 33 of ITP, an auto-immune disease. The Barnes Family was awestruck by the clinical skills, caring and compassion of the nurses who cared for Patrick, so they created this national award to say thank you to nurses everywhere.
