“This was a year in which we wrapped up a $20 million redevelopment project that brought more than 50,000 new specialized clinic visits to our facility, completed a successful accreditation and introduced Patient Experience Advisors to help us understand what matters most to patients and families when they come through our doors,” said Board Chair Sherri McCullough.

“We also boosted services to support patients living with chronic pain and youth struggling with a mental health crisis, and we enlarged the footprint of our eye clinic to accommodate escalating volumes of patients.
