Chief Executive Officer, Mesa View Regional Hospital.

Health care is always changing, brought on by scientific breakthroughs, technological advancements, government regulation and reform. But there is one constant: physicians still shoulder the ultimate responsibility for a patient’s care whether it be in the emergency room, on the operating table or in a clinic. From the first days of medicine, doctors held the fate of their fellow human beings in their hands – and certainly in their hearts.

It’s why we pause on Doctors’ Day each year to thank the men and women who made the decision to travel down that long road to becoming a physician. We at Mesa View Regional Hospital are grateful for all the physicians in the community who work in the hospital, offices and clinics.

On March 30 we take time to thank our doctors – primary care and specialists – for their dedication to the many lives they touch each year. We recognize these men and women for their contributions, sacrifices, skills and service to our community.

They are all part of the Mesa View Regional Hospital family of independent physicians who work with us and other health care professionals in our community to provide outstanding medical care.
