Since 2012, UM St. Joseph Medical Center has celebrated our physicians and nurses by honoring a class each year into the Healing Hands Guild and Profiles of Compassion Society.  

Healing Hands

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.
