St. Vincent Charity launches social media campaign

The history of Cleveland and St. Vincent Charity Medical Center are not independent of one another. A city is people. A hospital is people.

"As a former patient, I can say that St. Vincent Charity Medical Center demonstrates and unparalleled culture of caring," said Dominique Moceanu, 1996 Olympic Gold Medal Gymnast at a special event held on Thursday, May 22. "St. Vincent is small, but mighty and cutting edge!"  She joined friends, followers and fans to get a first look at how the city and the hospital have helped one another through nearly 150 years. St. Vincent Charity premiered a new video introducing the social media campaign #STV150.

Moceanu joined St. Vincent Charity Medical Center Chairman of the Board Melvin G. Pye, Jr., and Sister Judith Ann Karam, CSA, Honorary Chair of the 150th anniversary to unveil the campaign to countdown to the official kickoff of the hospital’s yearlong 150th anniversary celebration. Sister Judith Ann spoke of the "palpable mission of service" at St. Vincent.

"When I walk the halls of St. Vincent, I am greeted by the heart and soul of this hospital--employees, physicians and volunteers," said Sister Judith Ann Karam, CSA, Congregational Leader. "They are here because of the mission. Their competencies and dedication to quality are gifts to the Sisters of Charity of St. Augustine and the Sisters of Charity Health System."

The official kickoff of the yearlong anniversary celebration is October 18, 2014 at Pizzazz, St. Vincent Charity's signature fundraising event. But before that happens, St. Vincent Charity Medical Center will get the conversation started on social media to celebrate one of Cleveland’s legacy institutions by sharing photos, videos, stories and links from its history and from today.

Produced by Second Story Productions, the video gives viewers a glimpse into the relationship between the city of Cleveland and the founding of St. Vincent Charity in 1865. Further, it shows viewers what this "small, but mighty" faith-based institution, owned by the Sisters of Charity Health System, is today.

"We are honored to help tell the extraordinary story of St. Vincent Charity Medical Center's place in Cleveland's history," said Sara Sullivan, Managing Director of Second Story Productions. "Its 150-year legacy of care and innovation is a celebration in which our whole community can rejoice."  

In addition to its kickoff at Pizzazz on October 18th, St. Vincent Charity will host a number of events open to the community held throughout the anniversary year, including a Christmas Tree Lighting on the front lawn December 3, an Anniversary Bash on February 28, 2015, a Community Lunch on the Lawn in August 28, 2015, and a Closing Mass and Luncheon honoring the Sisters of Charity of St. Augustine at the Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist on Sunday, September 27, 2015. The closing event coincides with the Feast of St. Vincent de Paul, the patron saint of St. Vincent Charity.
