"I started my career at SSM Health Good Samaritan Hospital - Mt. Vernon on April 29, 1977. SSM Health prepares and encourages employees to hold exceptional service standards. Respectful and caring people in management, and people whom I worked with made it easy for me to stay with SSM Health for over 40 years. I've been a caregiver and a patient. As the very first open heart patient at SSM Health Good Samaritan, I've been with the open heart program for over 16 years."
