Plan of the Week: Jan 15 - 21

Plays of the Week:

Play of the week goes to the ward resident workroom which experienced multiple updates. First off, Dr. Elizabeth Perkins made a generous donation of a Keurig and K-cups to the ward resident workroom. On behalf of all the residents, we thank you for this morale boost! Dr. Andrew Warren, for his extraordinary organizational skills on the ward whiteboard. And Drs. Rob Crutcher and Billy Bennett for fixing the TV.

Play of the week also goes towards Drs. Alex Mauro and Rob Crutcher, who got champagne taps this week🍾

Play of the week goes to Maj Caitlin Drumm in the NICU, who was just named Field Grade Officer of the Quarter for the 316 MDG Healthcare Operations Squadron.

Play of the week also goes to these outstanding AF officers who were just selected for Lt Col: Caitlin Drumm, Alison Helfrich, and Brian Hughes!

Last but not least, we welcome Dr. Sunana Singh as one of our new PICU staff members!

Referral for Dr. Elmore

  • If you are seeing patients that need appointments with Dr. Elmore, please place your consult during the visit and have them schedule their initial appointment with Dr. Elmore at the check in/discharge desk on their way out.
