St. Rose Dominican is Taking the Great Kindness Challenge

At St. Rose Dominican, we strive to ensure that humankindness drives every interaction we have with the people we serve. During the week of January 26-30, St. Rose is encouraging employees to take part in The Great Kindness Challenge, which includes a suggested 50-item Acts of Kindness checklist to complete by January 30.

With their help, more than 100 Nevada schools are participating in this year’s Great Kindness Challenge. Participating schools are giving their students the 50-item checklist and encouraging them to complete that checklist by January 30. Students who complete the checklist will receive a gift from the Josh Stevens Foundation.

Globally, the Great Kindness Challenge is currently on target to have more than two million students enrolled for 2015, which will amount to 100 million acts of kindness in schools nationwide. In addition to serving as a presenting sponsor of the Great Kindness Challenge, many of Dignity Health’s more than 65,000 executives, employees, and physicians are taking the Great Kindness Challenge alongside the students, effectively “matching” their good deeds in hospital, clinic, and office settings.

“St. Rose is committed to practicing humankindness every day in our hospitals and care centers,” said Brian Brannman, senior vice president of operations for Dignity Health Nevada. “We are focused on putting policies in place that strengthen the human connection with our doctors, nurses, and caregivers so every guest feels welcome, safe, comfortable, listened to, and respected. Our mission calls us to collaborate with organizations that share the same goals and help spread the word about the power of kindness, especially within schools.”
