Marcelina Mejia de Castillo, Community Outreach Worker

My job is to assist families with young children to obtain insurance, food and social services. I’ve been with St. Joseph Hospital for five years. Our program was going to be shut down before St. Joseph Health stepped in. Each patient encounter is a sacred one, meaning that when they’re in my office, I don’t answer the phone or attend to anything else. Through listening, I identify more needs and get a better sense of how I can really help. I try to build positive and supportive relationships. Every patient is different. Thanks to my patients, every day is unique and special.

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.
