Notes from Steve

Under the title “The Answer to How is Yes” is the phrase - “Acting upon what matters”. (See photo.) In our daily and work life, how often are we of the perspective that it’s just easier to say no? I was talking with the pillar leaders the other day about...

Greg's Greetings

I don’t know about the rest of you but this year our family Thanksgiving looked a lot different. This year we were not surrounded by the usual guests at our home – my father-in-law, mom, two sisters-in-law and their families, my oldest daughter and her husband, and our youngest daughter....

Amy's Reflections

I was asked to share our reflections from 2020 at our leaders meeting this past week. I ended up putting together a PowerPoint with highlights for each month. Much to everyone’s surprise, we had a lot happen this past year besides COVID. It was really inspiring to look back and...

Notes from Steve

I was considering my Christmas letter this year. I thought a whole page of swear words would be appropriate, but not necessarily as festive as I would like. I thought I could write a song and do a short video of interpretive dancing - but that would be a lot...

Amy's Reflections

Notes from Steve

Today, Thursday November 19, 2020, is National Rural Health Day. Honestly, I didn’t feel 24 years ago when I assumed this role as CEO of Iowa Specialty Hospitals and Clinics (then Community Memorial Hospital) that I would still be here today. In 1996, as a 32 year old guy with...

Ashley's Perspective

We are over eight months into preparing, planning and adjusting to the COVID-19 pandemic. It has been a roller coaster and we are not done yet. Emotions are high and many of us are tired, yet we all keep pushing through as that is what we do as healthcare workers...

Notes from Steve

Weird time with the pandemic. Even though we are exhausted and really, just done with the whole thing … it’s still here, getting worse, and forcing us to reevaluate. It feels like the month of April again - but back then I seriously thought we’d be done with this by...
