2017: Another Great Year for Our System of Care

As we come to the end of 2017, I would like to highlight some accomplishments of the GBMC HealthCare System this year.

There’s no doubt that we continued to move towards our vision of becoming the community-based health care system where every patient, every time, gets the care we want for our own loved ones. 

I realize that the video below only mentions a small fraction of what the GBMC family did in 2017 to move us closer to our vision. What others do you want to mention? Please share your thoughts.

Best wishes to you and your loved ones for a Happy & Healthy 2018!

2017 End-of-Year Recap


  1. A big shout out to the work of the diversity and inclusion council--their work to foster understanding and dialogue among staff and patients surrounding sensitive "hot button" issues such as race, gender and sexual orientation has been outstanding.

    1. Thanks, Anonymous! Like I mentioned to Lisa, I should not have left out either the Forums or the work of Jennifer and the Council.

  2. If I may add one more to the list, please. This year marked the start of our Inclusivity Learning Forums under the leadership of Jennifer Marana, Director of Diversity & Inclusion. It has added another way for employees to connect, reflect, and learn from each other. Creating this space for understanding and appreciating others will also broaden our ability to better meet the needs of our community. Thanks!
