Sense of Belonging

Page with her childrenPage West is the senior vice president, chief nurse executive for Dignity Health and has been with the organization for over 28 years. Dignity Health’s values and mission resonate strongly with her own values as she is passionate about the people we serve. Page states that a strong desire to help those in need is what motivates her to give.

To Page, giving is a way of belonging to something bigger. Page has so many fond memories of her time at Mercy General Hospital (MGH), the lessons learned in catholic ritual and tradition from the Sisters. Page has a strong connection to MGH, as this was the hospital where her daughter (now 22-years-old) was born. She also recalls playing softball at MGH with Father Healy.  She also recalls sitting at the bedside of her father and experiencing the empathy of the care givers. The way these caregivers touched him is forever etched in her soul. Giving is one way that all of us can extend care and humankindness to those less fortunate in our community. Any amount can help those in need!
