From the President

Somehow, the holiday season always tends to creep up on me. It seems like one week it’s summer and the next the leaves are gone and the snow is blowing. Still, one of the reasons I love living in Colorado is the changing seasons and the variety of outdoor activities that can be enjoyed year-round.

As we look forward to holiday celebrations and a new start to the year, we also take time to remember the events of this past year. Both personally and professionally, there were many important things that happened this year. Among them was a celebration of the 110 years that Lutheran Medical Center has served the west metro area.

We’ve certainly gone through many changes, and have come a long way from the days of the Evangelical Lutheran Sanitarium, a tent colony to treat patients with tuberculosis. One thing that hasn’t changed is our commitment and involvement in the community. We are a part of the community and plan to continue to bring healing and the best that health care has to offer to the people we serve.

I wish you good health, good fortune and good times spent with family and friends this holiday season.
