“I also want to personally thank Rodger for his leadership and support during this transition. We have been working together for several months now – long before my actual arrival in Warrenton. During this time, his care for this hospital and community has been overwhelmingly evident, and he has helped make this a very smooth transition.”

A farewell reception will be held Wednesday, March 29, from 4 to 7 p.m. in the Sycamore Room at Fauquier Hospital. The public is invited to join staff and physicians to wish Baker and his wife well in their retirement.
