At an employee celebration last week, employees and senior leaders gathered to recognize the milestone. “You should all be very proud of what you have accomplished here,” said Chief Operating Officer Tim Daly. “World-class patient care is delivered here every day. And the work that everyone contributes just underscores our commitment to the community.”
Dr. Dale Poppert, medical center chief of staff, agreed. “Everything we do here is dedicated to the patient and their family. And we hold everyone to that standard. We all lift each other up and challenge one another to do even better. This hospital really is dedicated to making lives better.”
