Letter from the CEO

To the Community,

The situation reported in a recent newspaper article continues to be a priority for our organization and we are deeply sensitive to the issues.  Making sure we have a climate of dignity and respect, for both our patients and staff, is always our goal, and I am confident in our ongoing process to investigate and resolve these matters.

As your healthcare provider, and the community's largest employer, we are absolutely committed to patient and resident safety, all provided in a safe work environment for the staff. We embrace this opportunity to ensure our practices best reflect our organization's values.

Thank you for your continued support,


Joe Woodin, CEO
