As leaders, we have a responsibility to build a great culture where team members can grow, succeed, and enjoy each day,” said Brent. “Together, we are going to create a high-performance organization where our mission and core values guide our daily interactions as we become the gold standard in providing engaging, individualized, and compassionate care for our patients.”
