Notes from Steve

I used to hear these rumors that I was leaving. I don’t know how they started or why the story started (probably someone was tired of me and wished me gone). I got asked at the grocery store, church, the fitness center and it was, frankly, exhausting. I finally had...

Notes from Steve

Notes from Steve

I was reviewing my resolutions for this year and I had one left to achieve – an 8 minute mile on the treadmill … I’m so close. BUT – I decided this may be a fiscal year resolution (year ending June 30, 2018) so I would still have six months...

Warm Places Today was a great day around the hospital. We take care of people here. The day started with a trauma call in the ER. I observed, once again, everyone in their “element”. Vinnie was drawing up medication, Brian was holding cervical traction and Dr. Willerth was preparing to...
