To Our Neighbors
This issue of It’s Your Health introduces you to our new patient tower, a state-of-the art facility with all private rooms and a number of other amenities, including the new Center for Women and Newborns for our maternity patients and their families. I hope you enjoy learning about this much-needed new addition to our Henry Mayo campus.
It’s wonderful for our staff and physicians to have a modern, new space to care for patients, but what really makes a great hospital is a great healthcare team that has a single-minded focus on helping patients get well and that understands the needs of patients and their families. On page 14 you can read about Jamie Alamillo, a remarkable man who was told that he had a 1 percent chance of ever walking again. Thanks to Jamie’s determination, and to a Henry Mayo care team that wouldn’t give up on him, he’s now running and riding his bicycle long distances to raise money for medical research.
It took passion and determination to help Jamie recover and to provide support to his family. Our employees, medical staff and volunteers are already bringing that same passion and determination to work in our new tower. Wishing you a happy and healthy holiday season.
