In early November, Mercy employees Sara Sultan, admitting, and Taylor Isla, emergency department, were staff members were inspired to create a Tree of Thanks in the hospital’s main lobby. Employees, staff, patients, families and visitors are invited to stop by the lobby, pick up a “leaf” and write down something they are thankful for. Staff members then hang the leaves on the tree.

Cindy Mayle, manager, says her team has been overwhelmed by the response. “The things people are thankful for have been simple and poignant,” she says. “Giving thanks opens our hearts to God’s presence and our minds to God’s thoughts. It’s also been a wonderful way to connect people to Mercy and our mission. “
