Hannah Wright, Clinical Laboratory Assistant

I started at St. Joseph Hospital in 2014 as a member of the laboratory team. My contribution is to collect samples from patients for analysis. The data is essential for patient care as the physicians use lab results as one of their tools for diagnosis. Some procedures can be uncomfortable but I try to be conscientious and respectful of that. I slow down a bit and talk to patients and let them ask questions. If I can make a difference, even in a small way, in the tone or feeling our patients take away from being in the hospital then that’s when I know I’m doing what I was called to do.

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.
