Memorial Day a time to say ‘thank you’

This weekend, America reflects on the heroism of the men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice throughout the history of our great nation.  Together, we celebrate and honor them this Memorial Day.  May we always remember the sacrifices made for this country.

Many of us will enjoy extra time with family and friends this holiday weekend.  To those that cannot accept my thanks on behalf of the entire leadership team and all of your colleagues.  Our hospital’s mission and vision never rest, as your dedication shows time and time again.

Thank you for all that you do,
