“Our culture extends from our staff to our extensive corps of 475 active volunteers and countless donors, referral partners and even our social media followers,” says Mary Ann Boccolini. Employees at Samaritan Healthcare & Hospice participate in themed quarterly meetings, and an annual “Winterfest” brings staff, volunteers and their families together to celebrate service milestones. Samaritan also has an ongoing partnership with Kawempe Home Care in Kampala, Uganda. “Inspired by Kawempe’s mission to provide health, outreach and economic self-sufficiency for people affected by HIV/AIDS, TB and cancer, we offer support, education and friendship through reciprocal visits, monthly Skype [calls] and fundraising events,” says Boccolini. Each year, Samaritan hosts several events in support of Kawempe, including bowling, bingo and painting parties.
“A shared vision, committed leadership and engaged employees are all essential to Samaritan’s culture of compassion, service, excellence and innovation.”
