Felicia Smith Awarded Citizen of the Year

We recognize at Memorial Hospital of Converse County that so often it is the people who truly make a difference not only in our organization but our greater community. As Walt Disney once said, "You can design and create, and build the most wonderful place in the world. But it takes people to make the dream a reality." And that quote becomes a great deal clearer when we look upon our own staff, who work tirelessly not just to make their own part of the world shine, but seek to make a difference wherever they go.

Shared Governance: Decision Making at the Local Level

The children's author was born on this day in 1904, and his imaginative and poetic rhyme and meter carved a path in the hearts and minds of generations of children.
