Timothy Chicoine of Gibsonton, a patient at St. Joseph’s Hospital-South in Riverview with a serious illness, desired to see his daughter’s marriage. Timothy saw Danielle Chicoine, his daughter, marry Steven Davis in the hospital’s chapel on March 24 before a crowd of family, guests and St. Joseph’s Hospital-South team members. The hospital decorated the chapel and transformed a conference room into a reception area with decorations and refreshments.

“It was beautiful,” Timothy said of seeing Danielle get married. “The hospital did a great thing, it was incredible.”

“When we asked about doing this, we expected something small, maybe in her dad’s room with a couple of people,” said Steven Davis, the groom, “but this was incredible.”

Danielle said she was speechless when she found out what St. Joseph’s Hospital-South would do. “The whole hospital got involved. I’m more than grateful for what was done.”

“We are grateful and thankful and very humbled that BayCare would do this for our family,” said Joann Chicoine, Timothy’s wife and mother of the bride.

Part of the BayCare Health System, St. Joseph’s Hospital-South opened in February 2015 to bring high-quality health care services to Southern Hillsborough County in an environment designed to help patients heal. St. Joseph’s Hospital-South features all-private suites and offers emergency care, surgical services, imaging, intensive care, obstetrics, a neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), cardiac catheterization and more in a peaceful, relaxing and family-centered environment. The all-digital, state-of-the-art facility is specially designed to make visitors as comfortable as possible during their hospital experience.

The 223-bed hospital is located south of Tampa at 6901 Simmons Loop in Riverview. For more information, visit
