Meet Our Nursing Leadership Team

Peggy Walsh

Peggy Walsh, R.N. BSN, CNA, BC
Department Manager, General Surgery and Medical Surgical Unit
Joined St. Joseph Hospital in 1998

"I did not know much about 'the best kept secret in O.C.' until a head hunter called me as they needed a manager for orthopedics and general surgery at the time. After just one interview I knew this is where I wanted to be! I like the people, the culture. People truly care about each other. There is no “back stabbing.” Everyone is supportive and helps each other. Our Med-Surg managers are a tight-knit group who work outstandingly well together. What makes our unit unique is the staff. I have nurses that have been here 30+ years all the way down to new hires and grads. They love the care they give, the patients they care for, and the physicians with whom they work."
