To every patient, every time, we will provide the care that we would want for our own loved ones.

"Our healthcare system is unique because it is large enough to provide the expert level of care that our community needs, but small enough to deliver the level of service you would want for your loved ones. Our ultimate goal for this extensive celebration is to thank the many dedicated volunteers, employees, physicians and nurses at GBMC HealthCare for bringing us to this point. Through them and our generous donors, we are growing ever closer to achieving our vision of bringing us closer to providing every patient, every time with the care that we would want for our own loved ones."
