George Batiste, RN, Surgery

I work in the heart of the hospital, the surgery prep area, as a prep nurse. You could say I'm one part of what makes the surgery run smoothly. I've been with St. Joseph Hospital for thirty great years. I've floated between surgery, the Intensive Care Unit and ED. As a prep nurse, it's my job to keep everything running on schedule. If you have surgery on a Monday morning, I'm the guy who makes sure everyone is where they need to be.

When you’re our patient at St. Joseph Health, everyone is committed to the care you experience. Our quality service and excellent care shine through — from the biggest procedures to the smallest details. We know how uniquely privileged we are to serve our dear neighbors in Humboldt County.
