"I love this hospital. I love the patients and the atmosphere. I want to be here long term. This hospital is helping me grow in my career, giving back is the least I could do."
- Nimesh Shah, MD, General Surgeon
DeKalb General Surgery & Surgery Oncology
“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 (Founders' Circle) level.”
- Marjorie Alston, Chief Operating Officer
