Employee New Year's Resolutions

Renee Diamond, MD First I’d like to extend a huge thank you to everyone at Iowa Specialty Hospital who has welcomed me and my family into this community. We are grateful for the opportunity to be in a grounded (no plug intended, Steve) community to raise our little girl. Your...

Making the Rounds with Dr. Hurt

Take this job and love it! One of my attending physicians once told me, “Life is to love and to work.” Work. The satisfaction, fun, and fulfillment you experience are benefits you can give yourself. In a recent national survey of 180,000 American workers, 80% indicated a dislike for their...

Notes from Steve

Notes from Steve

I’m wearing this Fitbit bracelet thing that buzzes when I hit 10,000 steps. I am addicted to the buzz. I am reminded of Pavlov’s dog – salivating when the bell rang… I am validated when my wrist buzzes. (On another note, I need a life … I need to get...
