Making the Rounds with Dr. Hurt

It’s Thanksgiving, so obviously I must share things I am thankful for: I’m thankful for my wife who knows me completely, transparently, and sometimes painfully, and loves me anyway!

Notes from Steve

Thanksgiving Yesterday was Governing Board day at the hospitals (two Board meetings, noon and evening). I am thankful for visionary Boards who allow us to look at the crossroads of “what’s happening in health care” and “what’s best for our communities” and “the best place for employees to work, providers...
