We’ve read stories about doctors and nurses but what about everybody in between who makes St. Rita’s Medical Center the fantastic care center that it is? David Shutt has a long history with St. Rita’s throughout his life.
David was born at St. Rita’s in 1980 and the summer after high school, he decided to volunteer at the hospital. He volunteered in patient transport in 1999 and came back as an employee in the environmental services department in 2016.
“I wanted to work at St. Rita’s because I liked the people here when I volunteered after high school,” Shutt said.
As a floor tech, David works to make sure patients are staying in a clean room and the hospital is up to St. Rita’s standards.
“I like what I do because it’s for the patients. I want to give them a nice place to stay.”
While it is easy to see St. Rita’s employees as family when you’re there working, David also had experiences with the care teams before he became employed at the hospital. His mother was a patient in 2009 and he was thrilled with the tremendous care she received.
“I love the environment I work in. It’s nice to have people look up and say hello when they pass you in the hallway,” shared Shutt.
This is part of a monthly series of stories submitted by St. Rita’s Medical Center marking the 100th anniversary of the hospital.
