On Friday night, we LITERALLY did it: We melted March down!! When a group of hard-working, passionate employees get together, apparently they can change the season. Last week we had below zero wind chills, and this week we are in the 70’s. What a fantastic party. It was a much anticipated and needed celebration of the heart and soul of our hospitals and clinics: the people. Thank you to all the providers who generously donated to make the party happen and to those who spent so much time planning it and serving at it. March is provider appreciation month including Med Staff Recognition Day on March 30th, so please show your gratitude when you get the chance.
I love March! Spring Break, spring football, March Madness, and St Patty’s day (my mom’s maiden name was Sullivan) all occur in March. My daughter is an NCAA intern helping with planning of the Final Four. Yesterday, I received tickets to the Omaha regional in the mail! Even though my teams (Nebraska & Creighton) couldn’t even see the bubble, I’m super excited to see the tourney in my hometown. Hopefully, at least one of my “adopted” teams (ISU, Iowa, or UNI) will be playing at Century Link. My prediction is that all three will be in the sweet 16!
Happy Hoops and Happy Spring, everyone!
