In anticipation of the third Summit County Community Surgery Day to be held tomorrow at the Peak One Surgery Center in Frisco, Colorado, I would like to express my sincerest gratitude to all of those involved.

Fifteen procedures have been scheduled for Saturday, October 20, 2012, which will involve 12 Anesthesia providers, 3 Physician Assistants, 7 Surgeons, 14 Preoperative & Postoperative nurses, 3 Front Office staff, 13 Operating Room/Materials Management/XR Technologist personnel, and many additional volunteers to assist with the patients and their family members, as well as to serve food to the staff.

It is truly a model of cooperation between many different organizations and individuals to be able to provide these needed services to our own neighbors. From the Peak One Surgery Center, the Summit County Community Care Clinic, Pinnacle III Management Company, Vail Summit Orthopaedics, Anesthesia Associates, the Saint Anthony's Summit Medical Center, to a myriad of product representatives, and to each individual giving their Saturday off to help their fellow community members tomorrow, thank you.

Thank you all, very much.
