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.
