Please Nominate a Vincentian Employee
For Going Above and Beyond

At Vincentian, we believe that excellence is defined in the ordinary and extraordinary –those “Everyday Heroes” who devote their lives to helping others. These caregivers go above and beyond in providing compassionate care to those we serve –and each other!

Will you help us highlight these outstanding individuals?

If you know a Vincentian caregiver who deserves recognition, nominate them for our Everyday Heroes award. Four times per year, we’ll select one Everyday Hero from each of our campuses to recognize, and all nominees will be entered to win a special prize drawing at the end of the year.
