  • The celebration aimed to recognize the dedication, skill, and unwavering commitment of the hospitals’ remarkable doctors.

Students from Shalimar Elementary, Kenwood Elementary, Edge Elementary, Plew Elementary, and Lewis School participated in an extraordinary project, crafting thank you cards for the physicians.

The thank you cards created by the students serve as tokens of immense gratitude and symbols of the love and support the community shows their healthcare heroes. The collaboration between the hospitals and local elementary schools highlights the strong bond between healthcare providers and the communities they serve.
