Aspen summer crowd lends an ear to docs from top-ranked Methodist Hospital, it'sapplause, applause
Only days before The Methodist Hospital received Texas' top ranking by U.S. News & World Report, Methodist top guns were in Aspen touting the five-hospital system's medical prowess. Leading the charge was hospital system president and CEO Dr. Marc Boom.
The Methodist connection with Aspen has been long-standing thanks to the formal relationship between The Methodist Hospital Center for Performing Arts Medicine and the Aspen Music Festival. In fact, a string quartet from the festival performed as more than 120 guests arrived at the Aspen home of Cam and Rod Canion. Hosting the gathering were Nancy and Jack Dinerstein and Susan and Dr. Dick Stasney.
Part of Boom's message was that Methodist, with 14,000 employees and 4,000 associated physicians, has for seven years been ranked as one of the nation's "100 Best Companies to Work For."
A number of the top gun physicians including Dr. Barbara Bass, Dr. Mauro Ferrari, Dr. Patrick McCulloch and Dr. Michael Reardon were on hand to mix and mingle.
Guests at the "Peak Performances" afternoon included Dr. Julie Boom, Denise Monteleone, Stephanie and Ernie Cockrell, Estela and David Cockrell, Marita Fairbanks, Jennifer and Todd Frazier, Leslie and Jack Blanton Jr., Cathy and Giorgio Borlenghi, Debbie and Vidal Martinez, Sarah and Duncan Underwood and Clayton and Shel Erikson.
