Transforming Medicine Campaign

Nobody made a greater mistake than he who did nothing because he could do only a little.
 —Statesman Edmund Burke (1729-1797)

Giving thanks to donors

By Kate Villars

Supporters of the Transforming Medicine Campaign gathered with Medical Center leaders at the annual donor appreciation reception in September to celebrate the progress of the Campaign as it enters its final year.

Dr. George Blike, DHMC's quality and patient safety officer, gave the evening's keynote address, describing the quality improvement processes and facilities that are integral to DHMC's commitment to delivering effective, efficient, timely, and safe care for every patient.

Another highlight of the evening was the presentation of the Outstanding Community Ambassador Award, honoring an individual who exemplifies the Medical Center's commitment to its community; it went this year to longtime DHMC volunteer Shirley Reid.

"We're very fortunate to have a leading academic medical center ...in such a beautiful place."
