Best Places to Work in 2022: St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center - Gabrielle Finley-Hazle
Gabrielle Finley-Hazle is a purpose-driven growth strategist, president, and CEO of Dignity Health Arizona Central and West Valley market, part of one of the largest nonprofit health systems in the nation. Gabrielle was recently featured in an article published by AZ Big Media, Best Places to Work in 2022: St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center.
“Founded in 1895 by the Sisters of Mercy, St. Joseph’s was the first hospital in the Phoenix area. Today, Dignity Health St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center is a nationally recognized center for quality tertiary care, medical education, and research. It includes the internationally renowned Barrow Neurological Institute, the Norton Thoracic Institute, Center for Women’s Health, and a Level I Trauma Center verified by the American College of Surgeons.”
“WORKPLACE CULTURE: “Some of the strengths I see not just at St Joseph’s, but throughout Dignity Health, is the culture of ‘Hello Humankindness,’” says Gabrielle Finley-Hazle, CEO of Dignity Health Arizona Central and West Valley Market, and CommonSpirit Health. “Many people that come to work for us say, ‘I actually see that we live, eat and breathe this culture.’ I’m super proud of the team. I’m proud of the culture that not only our executive team, but our physicians and our clinical staff continue to celebrate throughout the days.”
“NOT JUST A CATCHPHRASE: “I think our workforce epitomizes ‘Hello Humankindness,’” says Finley-Hazle. “We talk a lot about connecting with the human spirit. Our ability to touch each other, not just physically, but emotionally and spiritually makes all the difference when it comes to healing when it comes to healthcare, but also when it comes to being an employee in that type of environment. Just as an example: In every meeting, we start with a reflection. That alone changes the tone of the meeting. It changes the tone of the organization. When I have an opportunity to talk to new employees on Mondays at new employee orientation, I tell them they can work in many places throughout Arizona, but they chose to work here. They often tell me it’s because it’s a mission-driven organization where they can see us living our mission every day.”
