Michael Grimaldo, Operating Engineer

I’ve been with St. Joseph Health Humboldt for eleven years. I started at Redwood Memorial Hospital when I was eighteen, right out of high school. Fortunately, I have a lot of contact with patients and their families. I make it a point to go above and beyond in every encounter with them. It may not be in my job description, but having a genuine interaction with a patient or family member and giving them your undivided attention, even for a moment could be the one encounter they are looking for that day. Small gestures can mean so much to a family with a sick loved one. I like those experiences.

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.
