The Brothers Coyle Have You Covered!

This summer, we turn the spotlight on St. Mary’s master painters and brother duo, Jim and Danny Coyle.

Jim has worked at St. Mary’s for 18 years and Danny for 11… that’s nearly 3 decades of painting the walls and halls of our Hospital!

Besides having an eye for color, some of you may know that Danny is also a Martial Arts instructor and owns the school Lasalle Kyokushin Karate, Coyle Dojo Inc. (click for Facebook page)

Jim puts his steady-handed skills to good use as a talented baker. He often gifts his delicious banana bread to lucky staff members and has offered to share his recipe with all!
