I especially enjoyed seeing employees across our organization have fun with the ’80s-themed dress-up days during our anniversary week. You can see some of these pictures on page 4. Now that we have celebrated, we are focusing on sustaining CMH for the next 40 years and beyond. New building projects are exciting, but the employees inside the buildings are the heroes who make a difference in patients’ lives every day. That is why our leadership team is focusing on developing leaders and investing in our employees. We want to create the best working environment so that employees can provide you with the best health care experience. Read more about our efforts to invest in our people on page 12, and please consider joining our team. Expanding community partnerships is another step in our growth. Read about our new partnerships with Bolivar Schools and Recovery Friendly Workplace Missouri on pages 6 and 13. Ultimately, we want you to have the best health care experience every time you come to CMH. In this issue, read about a patient who had hip replacement surgery and was able to return to enjoying her passion: taking care of rescued horses. I hope the information in this issue of Vitality will help you be better informed about your health. Thank you for your support of CMH for the past 40 years. We look forward to making the next 40 years even better!
