Iowa Specialty Hospital

A View from the Inside

Steve Simonin CEO

Christmas memory: I’m in the upstairs bedroom with my sister, either 4 or 5 years old.  We are up literally all of the night Christmas eve, waiting and listening for Santa.  Since we were in the upstairs bedroom we listened for the sleigh on the roof… 

With the world moving in all sorts of directions because of social media, etc. it is amazing and wonderful that kids and adults still get into the spirit of the holidays like they used to.  The hallways and areas at Iowa Specialty Hospitals & Clinics are decorated with Christmas cheer, we caroled in the hallways of the hospitals and earlier this month, Santa came to visit the kids here.  The enthusiasm is contagious.  

The best gifts I’ve received this year are the wonderful comments I hear from the patients about their experiences at Iowa Specialty Hospitals & Clinics.  Additionally, the smiles and compassion I see from the staff to each other and our patients and visitors really warms my heart.  

As we move into 2020, my wish for all of you is great health and happiness.  Dance with joy, and love and sing with abandon … let your inner heart glow the entire year.  Thank you for allowing us to serve you and Merry Christmas!
