A Note from Reginald W. Coopwood, M.D. Every day when I’m driving to my office at Regional One Health, I’m reminded that miracles are real. To be able to look a family in the eyes and tell them that, while their loved one is indeed facing a serious medical situation, we have hope—that’s what keeps us going. We are able to have hope because at Regional One we have outstanding doctors, nurses, staff, technology, equipment, and processes that exist for the purpose of saving and improving lives. Our Centers of Excellence stand alone in this region for the availability of world-class care that Memphians, Mid-Southerners, and even—as you’ll read in one of our stories here—people from across the globe are able to obtain. For us at Regional One, care means more than medical treatment. It means heart. It means compassion. It means laughing and crying along with our patients and meeting them where they are. Nothing is easy for our patients and their families when they are facing life-threatening events, trauma, the possibility of an extended recovery period, or have complex health and social needs. Our job is not to just heal them, but to care for them. As you read in these stories from our patients, we don’t take this charge lightly. We are able to have the resources to be world class and the people who lead with their servant’s heart because of you, our donors. For years, your gifts have allowed us to purchase state-of-the-art medical technology, provide advanced training for our caregivers, and launch programs that improve some of our community’s most troubling health issues. Your gifts help us believe that miracles will continue to be real for more people when they need us. From the bottom of my heart, thank you for the support you provide Regional One Health, our patients, and our caregivers. Reginald W. Coopwood, M.D. President & CEO Regional One Health 37 REGIONAL ONE HEALTH FOUNDATION
