Now more than a week after the dedication of the surgery family waiting area, I can reflect on the outpouring of support, love, admiration, and respect I was shown by colleagues, administration, nurses, and patients. I was truly choked up as I heard so many people give speeches and saying such nice, kind things about me.
But that was not my intent. I wanted to dedicate a space for patient’s families to wait for word about their loved ones in peace and tranquility. The space is truly magnificent. I also wanted to dedicate the space not to myself and my family, but to all the nurses and techs who help me deliver the best results and outcomes in the safest, most caring environment possible.
So to everyone who came to the event to show support, and to every physician and administrator who said such nice things about me, thank you!
