“As an operator, it is important to know we have the resources to provide great patient care. It really does take a village. I want to do my part; It might be a small part, but it is my part. We have more than 3,500 employees. Just imagine if the majority of us were giving at that (Founder's Circle) level.”
~ Marjorie Alston, Chief Operating Officer
