MultiCare is a proud sponsor of Tacoma Pride, which like so many events will look a little different this year. While we may not come together in person this year, Pride Month still represents the opportunity to reaffirm our commitment to eliminating discrimination, disparities and violence towards the LGBTQ community.
Prioritizing the health and well-being of our employees is critical. One resource that allows MultiCare to do this year-round is a program called Code Lavender. “The COVID-19 pandemic has been frightening for both patients and staff, so Code Lavender quickly added to its menu of regular services for employees to help with this,” Damian Gennette, Employee Wellness Coordinator, says. “These enhanced services have been designed to offer extra support during a highly stressful and uncertain time. We want our employees to be safe, calm and confident in order to provide excellent patient care during this critical health crisis.”
Prakash Gatta, MBBS, FACS, is an esophageal surgeon at MultiCare. He contracted and recovered from coronavirus (COVID-19) in March. Now, Gatta is using his own experience (and his blood) to give back to others affected by the disease.
Striking a healthy work-life balance is a goal that, at one point or another, we all attempt to accomplish. MultiCare Deaconess Hospital Labor & Delivery nurse Brian Barbero, RN, takes this balancing act to a whole new level. As a nurse, firefighter and military service member, Barbero’s commitment to his community is a passion fueled by selflessness.
We stand with the community in the fight against racism and injustice. The only way to effectively address the most difficult issues of our time is with integrity—to speak and act honestly and in ways that build trust. Any process that will redress injustice and racism must be rooted in a commitment to honesty and transparency. Integrity is elemental to creating the safe, prosperous, and healthy communities that we desire for our children and the future. Read our full statement:
At MultiCare, we’re driven by a desire to make health care better. Given the COVID-19 crisis, that’s more important than ever. We’re actively recruiting clinical and non-clinical roles to ensure we’re ready for increased patient volumes. Even if you've never worked in a hospital setting before, there may be a great opportunity for you.
"Being a nurse gave me confidence and expanded my comfort zone. Nursing is good for anyone who is shy and introverted. When you care for a patient, you can build on that. You are their advocate."
