We are proud to announce the launch of our new podcast, Courage in Healthcare. In this series, we will speak with leaders in the healthcare community who have seen their organizations through trying times.
In our first episode, we speak with Dr. Tom Sonderman of Columbus Regional Hospital. During the catastrophic flooding event that devastated the Midwest in 2008, Columbus Regional suffered extensive damage and was forced to remain closed for over three months. Dr. Sonderman led his hospital through this dark time in a way that showed remarkable courage. Without revenue coming in, his team continued to pay the hospital’s employees and coordinated the delivery of emergency care with the help of mobile units from across the country. Dr. Sonderman made sure his hospital continued to honor its responsibility to its community even when its doors were shut.
