St. Vincent Charity launches new blog called Radiant

By Admin on 
Posted on October 24, 2016

From the beginning of time, people from all cultures have turned to stories to illustrate and examine the human condition. Stories have the power to touch our souls, enhance our understanding and transform our thinking.  At St. Vincent Charity Medical Center, we are surrounded daily by powerful stories of faith and healing, overcoming adversity and innovation in care—stories that illuminate Care Beyond Medicine.

In service of the magical pull and power of storytelling, we are proud to introduce RADIANT [www.svcradiant.com], our St. Vincent Charity Medical Center blog that shines a light on the patients we serve and the caregivers who heal through powerful words and images. This is not the place for press releases. Those will still appear on our hospital website as will a link to the blog. RADIANT, however, is for deeper engagement.

To be radiant means to send out something in rays or ways that cannot be seen, but that embody the qualities of happiness, love and health. We hope people find new reasons to engage meaningfully with St. Vincent Charity Medical Center through the narrative of those closest to us.

I hope you take a moment to read some of the stories. We intend to publish twice weekly to start. Examples of the kinds of stories we will share include:

·         Caregivers from all departments who goes above and beyond

·         Physicians who demonstrate extraordinary compassion and excellence

·         Patients who overcome adversity or touch others deeply with their experience

·         Innovations that makes life better for patients and the community

The STORIES page includes some featured patient stories. When you click on MORE STORIES toward the bottom of the page, you will see all of our current blog posts. If you have any questions or would like more information, please contact me at 216.363.7440 or email wendy.hoke@stvincentcharity.com.
