Vail Daily letter: Kimberly’s Corner

Tama Levine
Vail, CO, Colorado

I would like to thank the Vail Valley Medical Center Board of Directors, President and CEO Doris Kirchner, Vice President Tom Mars, Vaill Valley Medical Centeer Quality Board Members, staff members Sara Ladd and Ryan P. Magill for your support in establishing Kimberly’s Corner at the Vail Valley Medical Center.

The opening of Kimberly’s Corner, a library and resource center for patients and families located in the hospital shows that Vail Valley Medical Center recognizes that patients and their families are an integral part of the medical process and that medical care and treatment is a team effort involving, not only the medical providers, but the patients, their families and loved ones.

Kimberly’s Corner was established in honor of Kimberly Linn McDonald, who lost her life in November of 2000 due to medical complications. I believe that this wonderful library and resource center helps to keep her spirit alive.

The KLM Foundation was created in Kimberly’s memory to provide scholarships and patient education, and Kimberly’s Corner helps us achieve that goal.

On behalf of the KLM Foundation, I want to thank Vail Valley Medical Center for their generosity and continued support and invite the Vail Valley community to come visit Kimberly’s Corner.
