Employee Spotlight: “I chose to become a nurse because I truly enjoy helping others. It comes natural to me and I don't feel like I'm ‘working.’ The most rewarding part of my job is seeing patients progress and feel better. The gratitude they express toward you for helping them during their time of discomfort is rewarding. I met a traveler nurse who has worked at a few hospitals around the area and she told me how great it is to work here. She advised me to not leave. I've also had patients tell me how happy they are with the care they receive here and rave how Virginia Mason is the best they've encountered. It makes me proud to tell them that I've worked here for 12 years.” Diem H., RN, Surgical and Procedural Short Stay Unit, Seattle.

The most rewarding part of being at Virginia Mason is when I come to a patient or family member with no agenda other than to provide comfort and nurture, to ease distress. For patients with a new diagnosis, or a chronic condition, or at the end of life, it can be a fearful time. In Spiritual Care, we try to be a presence that makes their hospital experience as good as it can be during a challenging time. The most challenging side of my job is when I come into powerfully emotional situations, and there is often deep sadness. If I can help people find a measure of solace, then I feel I have succeeded in my job.” - Cynthia K, M. Div, Supervisor, Spiritual Care.
