As many of you know, over the last several days, we have been contending with intensive out of control fires in the foothills here.
The fires have been very close to our Verdugo Hills Hospital facility. From our Wound Care Program and the Hyperbaric room, we have watched the efforts to stop this fire play out right in front of us.
I want to take a moment and express the incredible pride I have for the sense of duty many of our team members have displayed during this time.
Karen, our Program Director for Verdugo has been evacuated from her home, however, there she was yesterday along with her team making sure the patients were treated. Several of our centers and our corporate offices are in the middle of the areas effected by these fires, yet every member of our teams have been there to take care of business. I just want to say thank you. I heard yesterday that Brent Bartlett, president of Hyperbaric Supply, has been deployed on a strike team to fight the fire towards Lancaster. We have him in our thoughts as well.
