“I can’t say enough about the Provider Education Program. When I went through the course, I kept thinking ‘what a wonderful learning experience that all our staff need to have.’ The five members of the teaching team were great. I have been working at the hospital for 20 years, and this is one of the best programs I have been through for staff. We have worked hard over the years to create a more humanistic and compassionate culture. This program will definitely help us in that direction.”
