Welcome from the Program Director

Thank you for your interest in our program!  St. Anne is a 128-bed, community hospital that is fortunate to be part of Bon Secours Mercy Health. The hospital has a family type of environment, provides excellent care and is also routinely involved in clinical collaboration at the system level. 

Our mission is to extend the compassionate ministry of Jesus by improving the health and well-being of our communities and bring good help to those in need, especially people who are poor, dying and underserved. We are proud to work together as a team to achieve our mission.

Our program started in July 2021 and our accreditation survey is scheduled for April 2022. Through communication with other hospitals in our system with existing residency programs as well as excellent preceptor collaboration, we were able to develop a good, sustainable program. We look forward to a successful survey. 

So why choose us? In my opinion, the family feel to the hospital, the large health system collaboration and our dedicated preceptors are our strengths. We look forward to hearing from you.
