“I’ve lived a lifetime setting high and adventurous sights, never allowing challenges to inhibit what I wanted to accomplish.
I gained a clear perspective about health and the persistent commitment of those providing care. I could have selected any healthcare organization in the world to care for me, but the specialists at Deborah focus on treatment far beyond our imagination. Deborah is ‘my’ hospital and I am forever indebted to them.”
