Messages for our community from our CEO

  • 11/25/2020 - Thanksgiving thoughts


    This is the season to rejoice in the things that we are most grateful for, and I am grateful to be part of such a caring community.

    I believe it’s safe to say this year has not been an easy one for any of us. And yet, we show up every day to support each other.

    It’s one of my life’s blessings to work alongside inspiring and dedicated people including our health care workers, volunteers and community partners. I am truly humbled by your never-ending compassion and drive for the greater good.

    On this Thanksgiving, my wish for you, your family and everyone in our community is a time of peace and respite. May you find joy in the moments with loved ones.

    Asante president and CEO

    Almeda Wildfire seen from Asante Rogue Regional Medical Center

    Our Southern Oregon community never ceases to inspire me. There are countless examples of incredible work being done to support our community's fire victims, including nearly 100 Asante employees who lost their homes.

    I'm humbled by the outpouring of compassion shown to our Asante family and the entire community with donations of food, clothing and supplies.

    I'm proud of our 6,000 employees who mobilized within hours to fill the Smullin Center with critically needed items, and who stayed at work long past their shifts to care for our patients — even when their own homes and families were being evacuated.

    Financial support has come from businesses, youths, our neighbors and friends. Asante's wildfire relief fund has received donations from across the county and as far away as London, England.

    I'm incredibly grateful to our community partners, who at the height of danger, were prepared to evacuate our Medford hospital. Both Mercy Flights and RVTD had transportation ready to move our patients to safety. Their readiness and the tireless work of our caregivers ensured patient care was never compromised.

    As healing begins, Asante will be here to provide health-related resources to help people through this devastating experience. There's no doubt the fires will have a lasting impact; however, with resiliency, this shared experience will bring us closer together as a community.
