Quiet Oaks Newsletter March 2021
2020 was a tough year for everyone, but out of it came many blessings.
________________________________________________________________________
The biggest blessing was the overwhelming support from
volunteers, community sponsors and continued donations.
Quiet Oaks could not fulfill our mission without each and everyone of you!
________________________________________________________________________
With that said, we're designating 2021 as our "Better Together" year,
making a difference in our community...TOGETHER!
DOCTOR APPRECIATION
Quiet Oaks Medical Director,
Dr. Patrick Lalley
On Mar 30th we celebrate National Doctor’s Day. This is a day celebrated to recognize the contributions of physicians to individual lives and communities. 
Quiet Oaks is blessed beyond measure by the contributions of Dr. Patrick Lalley, whose compassion and care of more than 1,000 hospice patients at Quiet Oaks has made such a profound impact. We are grateful to this man for his incredible sacrifice of time and his dedication to honoring individuals as they embark on their end-of-life journey. 

If you have a special message or note you wish to share with Dr Lalley, please email it to Shea at spede@quietoakshospicehouse.org

We will be compiling these special gratitudes for Dr Lalley and presenting them to him.
