“At the last Medical Center operations committee, the group asked that commendation for your work be recorded in the minutes. Additionally, the senior executives asked that I share their appreciation for your leadership and accomplishments. I certainly enjoyed the opportunity of working with you. You are a talented executive and I have no doubt you will positively influence every organization you support.”
