As we gather together with our loved ones this Thanksgiving, I want to take a moment to share how profoundly grateful I am every day to be working alongside such an incredible team of providers, staff and volunteers here at Boulder Community Health.

For most of us, the centerpiece of Thanksgiving is a wonderful dinner. This holiday is a time for reflection, so it’s a good time to recognize that every meal gives us an opportunity to listen to each other’s stories and share each other’s lives. Gratitude is a common theme in the stories shared in our cafeterias and break rooms. And we at BCH have much to be grateful for: living in Colorado with its abundant natural beauty, meaningful work, supportive friendships with our colleagues, the incredible teamwork that makes compassionate patient care happen every day.

Gratitude for each other and the important work that we share is at the top of my list this Thanksgiving. Whether you are delivering care at the bedside, helping a patient navigate their bill or keeping our health system clean – whatever role you play in our expansive network – know that your work is important and valued by your BCH family.

With thanks and appreciation for all you do,

Rob Vissers, MD, MBA, FACEP
