enjoy a celebration to honor Erin Littleton,
Fauquier Hospital's Ruth Krusie
Excellence in Nursing recipient.
Thanks to all the Fauquier Hospital staff who agreed to be interviewed -- Lisa Spitzer, our always cheerful and caring concierge; Emergency Department doctors Greg Wagner, M.D. and Matthew Rhames, M.D., who were as generous with their time as they could be; Dr. Adam Winick, interventional radiologist, who gave some historical perspective; Erin Littleton, RN, recipient of this year's Ruth Krusie Excellence in Nursing Award; and to the kind patients who took the time to share their experiences -- members of the Senior Supper Club for instance, and the happy parents of a beautiful two-hour-old baby girl.
And thanks to Julie, Jordana and John, for helping us to share the word about patient-centered care.
