Steve’s Weekly Wrap-Up (December 16, 2016)

animated-christmas-lights2The holiday season is in full swing and I am sure many of you are either celebrating within your departments or attending lots of outside activities. Thanks to those of you participated in caroling in the hospital again this year. I know everyone enjoyed the songs of the season. I will be away until December 27th as Lynda and I travel to New York City to celebrate with Sean, Anna & Corey and of course our first grandbaby Rylie. While I am away I know you will continue to provide great care to those who are not well enough to be in their homes with family. You will be their family as they heal and recuperate in our hospital. Thanks so much for your compassion and caring for these members of our community.

Congratulations to the Bariatric Center who recently received reaccreditation!!!! As with all of these surveys there is a lot of work that must be done to demonstrate the quality of care delivered at our center. Thanks for your commitment to excellence!


Don’t for get to bring your kids, grandkids, nieces and nephews to “Tea with Santa” on Sunday, December 18th from 3-4pm in the main lobby of the hospital. Ho!Ho!Ho!
