Notes from Steve

Marilyn “Turbo” Lint passed away last Sunday afternoon in the hospice room. I was visiting with her family shortly after and one of her kids asked how we are going to run the hospital without her. Good question. I remember when Marilyn came to us years ago after she retired...

Notes from Steve
