Man of Patients

Please read this lovely story from today's Boston Globe about George Geary, former CEO of Milton Hospital (for 18 years), who recently completed nursing school. George and I overlapped for a while as CEO's, and I was always impressed with his integrity, thoughtfulness, and caring. I am sure he is a great nurse! I wonder if we can recruit him away to join BIDMC . . . :)

great story. I hope I have the courage to do something like this when I am done with one career.

I love this story. As one who has also switched careers late in life, I know it takes courage to give up a successful executive position for a staff role. One must follow one's heart. What is work without passion after all?
