Giving Thanks



C. Scott Campbell 

Growing up in Richmond, Virginia, I had a front row seat as my father, Reverend Carl L. Campbell of the Ray of Hope Church, answered his calling and dedicated his life to caring for others. My father held this extraordinary position for 42 years.

In the 31 years I have spent in health care—an industry inextricably linked to the concept of caring—I have come across countless people who say their choice of a health care career was based on a mission to help others. Yes, a calling to touch lives.

Understandably, giving thanks and celebrating those who give of themselves takes center stage at this time of year. As CEO of Physicians Regional-Collier Boulevard, I have so much to be thankful for and even more to celebrate.

I give thanks for the giving spirit of the doctors and associates of Physicians Regional Healthcare System. For the compassionate care they provide on behalf of the patients of our community. For the way in which they thoughtfully deal with patients who may be at their lowest ebb. For each newborn baby and adult patient we are able to serve.

I am excited about the future of medicine and our ability to be on the front end of advancements in health care. How our investments in cutting-edge technology stand to make a positive impact on the patient community. For the way in which our entire team has embraced our Getting2Great (G2G) mission—our company-wide, patient-focused cultural transformation effort to fulfill our mission of enabling America’s best local health care.

But most importantly, I am thankful for the trust of the communities we serve. For the warm welcome we have received from the people of Marco Island and East Naples—not just for our Collier hospital campus but in regards to our soon-to-open Marco Island location at the Shops of Marco at the corner of Barfield Drive and San Marco Road.

Yes, the hospital business is like a ministry to me. Like my father before me, I resolutely believe in leadership, service and caring for others.

I assure you, at Physicians Regional- Collier Boulevard, we take your faith in us very seriously. On behalf of our team, I pledge to continue to provide you the high quality of care and service you deserve. From registration to discharge, we are here to serve your every health care need.
