St. Mary’s Healthcare Superheroes

St. Mary’s Healthcare Superheroes


In these unprecedented times, every single staff member of St. Mary’s Healthcare System for Children has heroically risen to the challenge. As you can imagine, medically complex children are especially vulnerable to infectious disease. Day in and day out, our staff continues to provide St. Mary’s Kids with the highest level of protection and exceptional care.

St. Mary’s staff is honored to have such dedicated people on our team and wanted to share a few ways they have gone above and beyond to ensure the safety of our patients.  Meet a few of our countless St. Mary’s Healthcare Superheroes:
