It also reminds me that it was teamwork and a strong culture that got us to this point. We've been named Best Place to Work in Texas three times by the Best Companies Group and the Texas Association of Business. Our recent Magnet Recognition® and the Healthgrades 2018 Outstanding Patient Experience Award exhibit that service truly is our passion. Our employees are here because they like being part of a supportive, goal-driven environment. is atmosphere also allows us to expand our delivery systems and technology in order to better provide for the communities we serve. Telemedicine is one of the ways we are doing just that. It is a low-cost way of supporting the large geographic area we cover. We know that when a community loses its hospital, it's a major economic hit to the people in that area. We want to be able to assist these communities by providing efficient and effective care to patients where it's convenient for them — in regional clinics or even at home. Our journey to attaining high employee and patient satisfaction doesn't end there. We will keep striving to build on our strong culture of service for years to come.
