The Methodist Hospital – USA

Dear Christopher (June 2006), I am now 18 months into my two years as president of the medical staff at TMH. My time as president as been a wonderful learning opportunity for me and a chance to grow in many different ways. I would like to take the time to express my sincere gratitude for the large part you played in my learning and growth. You always had time to meet with me and discuss my thoughts on our hospital organization and culture. Your guidance as I developed my thoughts was invaluable and tremendously appreciated. I know I have done a better job as president because of our time together. I also believe that I have become both a better leader and a more thoughtful person because of our interaction. I hope that you do not mind but I have copied Michael Lieberman as I believe it was because of your work with his group and because of Michael that I had the chance to work with you in the first place.
