Overview

St Anthony is a designated Pathway hospital. We support a culture of nursing collaboration and teamwork to help each other grow. We collaborate with the surgeons to determine care plans for patients. We work with our Hospitalists to understand and support goals of care as well. Our Nurses foster a culture of teamwork where everyone pitches in to help.

 

They take pride in quality improvements and performing at the top of their licensure/profession. CHI and St. Anthony Hospital has a strong shared governance system. We have a unit-based council made up of frontline staff that work together to identify areas of improvement and implement change. Unit Council Representatives also serve on the St. Anthony Hospital Coordinating Council that work on hospital wide initiatives.

 

Our mission is to deliver high quality care that meets our patients' medical needs while providing emotional and spiritual support to patients and their families. We believe this three-part approach — physical, emotional, and spiritual — is essential to healing the whole person. Come join our team!

 

St. Anthony Hospital enjoys the benefits of being part of the CHI Franciscan family of hospitals and other health care services providing care to our communities throughout the beautiful South Puget Sound Region of Western Washington. Recreational opportunities abound here - we offer water sports, skiing, hiking, shopping, fine dining, theater and an overall excellent quality of life.
