Take the Crown

GVMHRoyals (2)

Because it’s been 29 years, this week the blog will be all about the Royals.  I’m typing this blog prior to game 1 of the World Series but most of you will read it afterwards so you know who won the game.  My question to you is; does it matter?

When you’ve been on the outside looking in as long as the Royals have does it matter if you win or is it enough of an accomplishment to have simply made it to the World Series?

I’d suggest that if winning isn’t important then you shouldn’t be playing the game.  You play the game to win especially when playing at the highest level – the major leagues.

We do the same at GVMH every day.  Would you want to be a patient here if we weren’t at our best?  Would you want someone to love to receive care at GVMH if we only gave a half-hearted effort?

We provide health care services and we play to win.  We work on the biggest stage with the brightest lights possible because we care for someone’s loved one and they deserve our best.

Take the Crown!

    MY THOUGHTS EXACTLY. NOT JUST ABOUT THE ROYALS but ALSO ABOUT THE CARE AND SERVICE OUR PATIENTS HERE AT GVMH.
    I think we should all strive each day to improve and become better, both personally and professionaly. I have always had a hard time understanding the people that think its only about the paycheck. Your best employee’s, or ball players, are the ones who strive daily to make their world a better place everday. People who give of themselves everyday not only to improve their own lives but also the lives of others.
