An important lesson in life we must all appreciate is that there are always other people who face tougher challenges than our own. Challenges can surface in various facets of our lives, whether it be for survival essentials such as food, clothing, and shelter or for factors of social mobility such as access to education, gainful employment, and healthcare. Many times we take for granted what others may struggle for. In order to walk out our values of treating all patients and each other with dignity and respect, we desire to reduce life's difficulties by doing our part to give back to the community.
Giving back has been the core of our operation for the past 50 years, underscored by our sincere desire make a significant positive change in someone’s life. As a way to thank the community who makes our operation successful, Spectrum staff enjoyed time together to celebrate each other, show appreciation for a strong 50th year of service, and in the spirit of giving, pool our resources to collect toys and gift cards to give as holiday presents to select families.
At this time of year, many organizations host thoughtful holiday gatherings. We want to share our holiday photos to show how our gatherings and community giving reflect the lifelong lessons of empathy and compassion that we commit to pay forward to the City of Brotherly Love for the next 50 years and beyond. Have a safe holiday and happy new year!
