  • Employee of the Month

    Clarissa Cantu

    Clarissa Cantu, BSN, RN


    "A patient was fighting for her life against COVID-19 and requested the services of a priest. When our Pastoral Care Department was having trouble reaching one, Clarissa set up a FaceTime with her own priest and allowed the family and patient time with him. He delivered the Anointing of the Sick blessing, and Clarissa finished it by making the symbol of the cross over the patient since the priest wasn’t present to. We admire your compassion!"
