Douglas Flora: It’s a ‘beautiful day to save lives’

Douglas Flora shared a post on LinkedIn:

“Paraphrasing Dr. Derek Shepherd from Grey’s Anatomy, it’s indeed a ‘beautiful day to save lives.’ Today, we’re thrilled to open the doors to our newest St. Elizabeth Healthcare cancer care center, right here in Southeastern Indiana.

The opening of the Dearborn Cancer Center marks the culmination of five years of dedicated planning and commitment to extend our reach, bringing world-class, comprehensive, and compassionate care closer to home. Thankful to all of the planners/builders/doers/donors, as well as our mission-driven leadership and board members for making this idea a reality.

We’re here to offer strength and hope to this community, providing the highest standard of cancer treatments and support. Our aim is to make a life-changing impact on countless families and individuals in the area, ensuring top-notch care is always RIGHT HERE.

Welcome to our new facility, where every day is a step forward in the fight against cancer. To our patients: we are so pleased to be able to give your the home you deserve.”
