Dear Contra Costa Colleagues and Partners,
Thanksgiving is upon us. It is a time to stop, share a meal and precious time with family and friends, and, in the midst of whatever challenges we may be facing, reflect on what is right and good in our lives. It is a time for blessings to displace our burdens.
As health care professionals, we give special thanks to those among us who cannot stop what they are doing on Thanksgiving Day -- whose commitment to our community has them assisting those in need. We also know that many are not able to celebrate due to their personal circumstances.
They will be in our thoughts, as all of you will be in mine. I could not be more thankful for the privilege of working with such a dedicated and caring community of professionals and partners. Each day you bring your skill and spirit, contributing to our mission, making us one of the finest health systems in our nation.
I am grateful for your service and wish you and all your family and friends a safe and peaceful holiday.
