“I like the fact the MDI Hospital is community based and is so vital to the fabric of our island community. The hospital staff is a small community unto itself where we genuinely care about one another. I am proud of the good work we do not only in caring for patients who need care but in the outreach programs intended to keep our island community healthy.”
