In 2020, forget about your eyes. Work on your ears.

By Eileen McDargh - Monday, February 03, 2020

The only time I ever heard the term 2020 was in connection with my eyesight—not great at all. In fact, in sixth grade, the ophthalmologist told Mother that without correction, I’d be considered legally blind!

By Eileen McDargh - Monday, October 24, 2016

I admit it: a pickle pledge sounds like something created on Sesame Street to get kids to eat pickles. Or perhaps it is a rhyme: eat a pickle and get a nickel. You can have as much fun with that phrase as you’d like but nothing is further from the truth: The Pickle Pledge, created by colleague Joe Tye, is serious stuff. So serious that Midland Memorial Hospital went from an all-time low to an all time high in patient satisfaction in less than a year!
