What employees say about us
“I was experiencing symptoms after a car accident and was anxious something might be wrong. The nurse who answered my call at the Clinical Call Center was very reassuring and professional and put me at ease that I was in good hands. She asked me a series of questions to try to determine what the right next step was and ultimately made the recommendation that I go to the Emergency Department. It’s a good thing she did because it turned out I was more injured than I originally thought, and her guidance got me the help I needed.” Emily
“I quit smoking over a year ago. I marvel at how far I have come! I knew I was ready to quit, but this time I had the best team (the Center for Tobacco Control) alongside me. Your words, support, text messages, and genuine concern made all the difference. I learned so much about myself and am now a better person. Now I also talk to patients about quitting! My thanks to the whole quit team.” Ellen
