Giving Thanks

To Our Team and Our Community, As we gather with our friends and family during this holiday season, I am humbled and filled with immense gratitude. On behalf of the Portneuf Medical Center team, thank you! The pandemic has changed our world. It has changed how we value our health and it has placed a spotlight on our frontline caregivers who show up each and every day for their patients, their families and their community. I extend a warm thank you to the incredible team of physicians, staff and employees here at Portneuf. We are grateful for the spirit of camaraderie in our healthcare community and we appreciate and we are humbled by the partnership within our extended network of care providers in the region. One of the best parts of my job is hearing kind words and receiving notes of praise about our staff from patients and their loved ones. It is a daily affirmation of the work we do. It is impossible not to be personally moved by the miracles and the heartaches that are part of this facility each day. We carry your stories in our hearts this holiday season. We are honored to be a part of your care team and to partner with you on your healthcare journey. We rejoice, grieve and hope side by side as your father fights to breathe, your child cries out in pain and your loved one is given a tough diagnosis. We smile at the first breath of a newborn and those first steps after a life-changing trauma. We see your smiles, we hear your fears and we are grateful for your friendship and trust. In those times when we are exhausted and stretched thin, members of the community have come together to share a meal, taped paper hearts to our doors and lifted us up mentally and physically. Together, we are living in a world forever changed and together we are thankful, grateful and supportive. November is a perfect time to express our heartfelt thanks. From all of us at Portneuf Medical Center, we are encouraged and blessed by those who come through our doors. May the joy and hope be yours this holiday season.
