Distinguished Citizen of the Year, 2011
Former Chair of County Commission
MMH Board Member
"Manatee Memorial Hospital is a great asset that touches everyone in our community. Little and big miracles come from there every day.
MMH is up-to-date, informed and generous in its knowledge of the needs of our community, which have changed as Manatee County has become a younger community in many ways. MMH has adapted well to changing healthcare needs and factors.
As a corporate citizen of the community, MMH has the ability to keep pace with a rapidly growing community in the economic downturn, which has been a real challenge. They continue to advance their technology to answer people’s need for care.
And MMH understands the importance of cooperating with other healthcare facilities in the county to deliver the best healthcare to our residents. The county’s healthcare systems work in collaboration, with a shared understanding of the community’s needs. There is a sense of community pride.
MMH is my healthcare choice; I have been a patient there and feel assured by their long experience and seeing the hospital grow. When you have received the benefits of their experience and treatment, you want to go back there. My experiences have been very positive.
The hospital provides good care to the people of our community from birth to death — the cycle of life. I’ve seen how the staff at MMH responds to the great stress and need people who come to them for care, from treatment through follow-up, they demonstrate great concern and treat each patient as an individual. Each person has an identity at MMH from the time they come through the doors.
MMH is a real part of the community. They have worked hard with the county to make care affordable to residents. And they work to meet the needs of the patients and their employees with care and compassion."
