"Life's most persistent and urgent question is, what are you doing for others."
-Martin Luther King, Jr.

I was so pleased to learn last week that the CEO of our regional Confluence Health Medical Center has been named Outstanding Medical Center / Hospital Executive of the Year in the Seattle Business Magazine.


Dr. Rutherford is not only an excellent administrator, he is an amazing Doctor. Although he doesn't actually practice medicine anymore, since taking over as CEO, he WAS my husband's doctor during his extended illness.  Even after Dr. Rutherford accepted the CEO position he did not drop my husband as a patient.  He continued to see him.  After my husband became bedridden, Dr. Rutherford actually came to our house AND brought medications to our house because I couldn't leave.  It still brings tears to my eyes to recall his compassion during a very difficult time for us. 

Congratulations to Dr. Rutherford for this recognition and for being an amazing human being.

There are few folks who enter our lives and need to have great skills, and compassion, as much as doctors who we are the patients of. 

That's a great testimonial for Dr. Rutherford.  I have often found it odd that we can easily find ratings on other services we use, but learning the quality of our medical professionals can often be daunting!

Hi Myrl Jeffcoat ,
That is true about the lack of medical care reviews.  Wonder why that is.  It often turns out to be the luck of the draw, doesn't it?
