Veterans Day Thanks

An idea we have adopted for Veterans Day. Have you considered a similar thing for your hospital?

To: BIDMC Community

From: Paul Levy, President and CEO

Eric Buehrens, Chief Operating Officer and Executive Vice President

Subject: Veterans’ Day Thanks

BIDMC pays tribute to those who serve our country through military service.

It is our privilege to say, “Thank You,” to the many employees who are among the 24 million living American veterans – as well as the numerous staff and family members who are on active duty now. We appreciate their service and honor them for their sacrifices.

Tomorrow, Veterans Day (Wednesday Nov. 11, 2009) employee veterans and United States Armed Forces active duty personnel will receive a free meal (breakfast, lunch or dinner) in the east or west campus cafeterias. Just present your BIDMC ID badge and let the cashier know you are a veteran or active duty personnel member.

Also, if you would like to have a prayer offered for any veteran or active duty member of the military, please send the name and details you wish to include to either the Pastoral Care mailbox (select Pastoral Care from the dropdown menu in the “To” field of the e-mail) or directly to Rev. Julia Dunbar, Director, Pastoral Care and Education, at [email excluded here].
