Hannah Foley – On Leaving Timberline
November 24, 2009
Alas, health care is not immune to the downturn in the economy. At this time, I will no longer be taking care of you at Timberline Family Practice. I wanted to get this information to the community before the rumor mill got a hold of it.
I have lived in Grand County for 25 years, 15 of those as a nurse-practitioner. I have had the honor and the privilege of being a health care provider to many of you. I have celebrated with you when you quit smoking, reached your weight-loss goal or started a family. I have cried with you when you’ve lost someone you love or received a scary diagnosis. Together we have navigated the overwhelming process of health care.
We use the word patient in medicine, but for me I was taking care of my friends, neighbors and their children, as I would take care of my own family.
I don’t know what the future has in store for me, but our paths may cross again someday. I wish for all of you to continue to nurture your mind, body and spirit, and I will do the same.
I will absolutely see you on the slopes and trails.
