On Patients
"People expect quality care when they come to the hospital. My goal is to make sure they leave here feeling that all of their expectations have been met."

On Specialty
"It's great to see our joint replacement patients walking the halls of the hospital in the days after surgery. Most of them have had a lot of pain for many years and it's good to hear that their pain has significantly improved."

On Virginia Mason
"VM is a first-rate organization. Patients are priority number one here, and I have witnessed this over and over again since coming to work here."
