  • Kudos

You never know when Kudos will come or where they will come from. Sometimes they come from our wonderful Patient Experience Professionals who share what they are hearing from patients, sometimes directly from the doctors and staff, and sometimes from volunteers. We would like to share some of the Kudos which we received this quarter. We appreciate them and enjoy them and hope that through them you will have a real appreciation of our "Family" of patients, volunteers, staff, physicians and surgeons, and our wonderful neighbors.
