HASC Briefs for Nov. 23, 2021

President’s Message From George W. Greene

This week, many of us will gather around tables with our families and friends and take time to reflect on what we’re most thankful for. The year certainly has brought both familiar and unexpected challenges. Despite the continuance of COVID-19, our hospitals’ commitment to caring for all Southern California’s residents has not wavered — they have continued to safeguard our health and safety. For that, I am grateful and proud to work alongside their dedicated leaders.
