Card of Thanks: Joy

Tom the Lab Guy retires.

I would like to thank everyone for putting up with me for the last nine years at Dr. Pruitt’s and Pagosa Springs Medical Center. I have met some very nice people, but times are a changin’ and due to my age (I remember the Dead Sea when it was only sick), I am going to retire. I hope to see you around town and you will still talk to me. I promise, no needles.

I would also like to thank the entire staff at the hospital, Dr. Pruitt’s and Riverside Health for putting up with me. The staff at the hospital is one of the best I have worked with. We started out as a small med facility and have grown into one of the best and most modern in the Four Corners.

I can’t thank the nursing service and EMS enough for drawing the lab tubes while starting the IVs; it not only makes it easier on the patients, but also really helps with the turn around time on tests.

Once again, thanks to everyone for being a special part of my life. You will always be in my thoughts and prayers.

Tom Joy, retired lab manager at PSMC (sounds good, doesn’t it?).
