Improved patient care at heart of new NDH pavilion

by Curtis Schmidt

(Continued from cover) Since the goal is the best in patient care and safety, surgeons and physicians have also been included in the amenity-rich facility. Surround sound and high-definition screens are available in the six technologically advanced operating suites on the third floor to accommodate a wide range of complex and minimally invasive surgeries. The first floor will be home to 25,000 square feet of attractive offices for surgeons, cardiologists and primary-care physicians.

“The pavilion provides a much-improved patient and family experience,” said George. “We engaged our entire staff at all levels in regard to what is most important for patients and physicians and incorporated all of the input into this facility. This gives patients what they want and deserve.”

County Players continues its 58th season with Tracy Letts’ dark comedy, “August: Osage County,” on Friday, Feb. 5, at 8 p.m. One of the most acclaimed plays of the last decade, “August: Osage County” won the 2008 Tony Award for Best Play and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama.

Letts’ sprawling saga about three generations of an Oklahoma family has drawn comparisons to the work of American dramatists Eugene O’Neill, Sam Shepard and Tennessee Williams. When their father goes missing, the huge and completely dysfunctional Weston family reunites and sparks fly. Violet, the take-no-prisoners matriarch, struggles for control over a family set to implode over secrets, lies and betrayals.
