In Their Own Words: Read the stories of some of the Baystate Health employees who advanced care and enhanced lives in 2022.
"In healthcare we never know what we will encounter, and there are difficult days as well as rewarding days, but I try and make a positive impact every day, with every patient."
Yolanda Da Costa-Nwosu, RN Patient Care Coordinator, Baystate Mason Square Neighborhood Health Center
"I love our focus on the community."
"I am proud that in my own small way I am helping our team members provide the care people from our communities come here for when they have a healthcare need."
"Baystate Health gives me the opportunity to build on the foundation of my dreams, in an atmosphere of dedicated, enthusiastic, meticulous, and supportive professionals."
"I hope to use my position as a cardiologist who has also been through a heart transplant to continue to connect with my patients on a personal level and use opportunities like Heart Month to share my story and encourage everyone to sign up to be an organ donor."
"Being in their home provides me the opportunity to connect with them in a more personal way and develop a more holistic approach to their care."
"There is a sense of fulfillment in my part knowing that I made a positive impact on other people’s lives."
