Healing Hands 

The Healing Hands Guild was created to annually honor selected physicians’ personal leadership and dedication to UM St. Joseph Medical Center, as well as achievements in their chosen discipline. The Healing Hands Wall, located in the upper lobby, adjacent to the St. Francis of Assisi Chapel, dedicated in loving memory of Carmen J. and Theresa R. Deyesu, displays an impression of each physician’s hands along with inspiring quotes from these honored doctors.

Profiles of Compassion

The Profiles of Compassion society recognizes each honored nurse’s personal leadership and dedication to the mission of the University of Maryland St. Joseph Medical Center and commitment to clinical excellence and innovation. Their membership is permanently recognized on the Profiles of Compassion Wall, located in the hospital’s upper lobby. Each selected nurse’s silhouette and name are proudly displayed, in honor of her or his accomplishment.
