Report to the Community
A message from Marty Guthmiller, our CEO:
Health care is personal.
As we reflect on 2015 through our Report to the Community, we are reminded of this important aspect of what we as a health system are called to be and do.
Whether it’s the care we provide at Prairie Ridge Care Center for my beautiful grandmother … or the care at the hospital for my father … or the care at the clinic for my extended family … it is all very personal. While we never take for granted the privilege of caring for others, we must always be cognizant of who it is we are caring for – not simply a person, but someone’s spouse, child, parent, grandparent, sibling, friend. It’s personal. And it’s our pledge to keep it that way. 2015 was a great year for Orange City Area Health System. Included in this report is a glimpse at some key elements of our year.
We look forward to 2016 and the opening of the new addition at Landsmeer Ridge Retirement Community, along with continuing to promote – and build upon – the depth and breadth of our primary care team.
Thank you again for the trust and confidence you place in us.
– Marty Guthmiller, CEO
