Looking good – at 107!

With a long history of compassionate care, Dignity Health had its Arizona beginning with
the establishment of St. Joseph’s sanitarium in 1895.

Originally, St. Joseph’s offered twelve beds and was housed in a rented six-bedroom
cottage. As the population of the valley grew, the hospital expanded to meet the needs
of the community.

In the mid-1940s St. Joseph’s management purchased 10 acres of land at Third Avenue
and Thomas Road, part of an old dairy farm. They were criticized for choosing land so far
north of the city, but the leadership team had foresight and a keen understanding of a
good business deal. A modern, spacious facility opened in July 1953, and St. Joseph’s has
thrived at this same location for more than half a century.

The leadership of Dignity Health still demonstrates foresight and innovation. In 2002,
they prioritized the value of building a best company culture. Since then, they have
received numerous local, state and national awards. Their patient satisfaction survey
scores soared along with their employee satisfaction scores. Dignity Health is a stellar
example of how building an exemplary workplace produces measurable, tangible
results, helping the organization stand the test of time.

    Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this website. It’s simple,
    yet effective. A lot of times it’s hard to get that “perfect balance” between usability and appearance. I must say that you’ve done a very good job with this.
    Additionally, the blog loads super quick for me on Chrome. Superb Blog!
