Thankful for You!

This Thursday is Thanksgiving Day. I would like to wish a Happy Thanksgiving to my GBMC colleagues. 

Thanksgiving is a time to reflect on all that we have. I am very fortunate to have a wonderful wife and children, and wonderful friends and family members.

The GBMC family has a lot to be thankful for as well. We have a beautiful campus, great doctors, nurses, allied health professionals, and support staff working in the hospital, at GBMC Health Partners, and at Gilchrist. We are so lucky to have our fabulous volunteer auxiliary and tremendous community support. Members of the community serve on our GBMC HealthCare Board, the Philanthropy Committee, and the Gilchrist Board. Our governance bodies are made up of individuals who are dedicated to the mission of GBMC – a mission of health, healing, and hope for our community.

I am grateful for everyone who helps us care for our patients and I am grateful for the patients themselves, who entrust their care to us.

I also want to extend a special “thank you!” to all who will work on Thanksgiving, or who are working during the extended holiday weekend.

Again, wishing you all a joyful Thanksgiving!

P.S. What are you thankful for during this time? I’d love to hear about it – please leave me a comment!


  1. I am happy for the way we stay on target for our mission and vision, caring for all in the community, and staying focused on that goal. Thanks to you and all at GBMC.
