Guiding Principle
“We are caring for our friends and neighbors so good enough is not good enough. We continually learn and grow. We push ourselves to be better than the day before. We take pride in the work we do. Our community deserves the best and that is exactly what we deliver each day.” 

What He is Trying to Do
“Our community relies on us to structure health services that restore them to health, maintain their current state of health, or improve their health. This is a significant undertaking because delivery of healthcare is a team sport where the patient plays a prominent role. There are tremendous regulatory, financial, and resource constraints on hospitals. TAMC will ensure the health of its community by employing the best and brightest, building quality into our work, and teaching the tenets of a healthy lifestyle.”
