This letter is in response to a letter (“Not surprised about Twin Cities’ problems”) in the Oct. 13 issue of New Times in which Dr. Stephen Mulder describes himself as a “30 year veteran of the surgical department” at Twin Cities Community Hospital (TCCH). His self-description is accurate, but his letter doesn’t make clear that Dr. Mulder’s association with the Anesthesiology Department at TCCH concluded in July of 2015 and that he does not speak for the current members of the Anesthesiology Department.
Our department is committed to providing excellent service for the patients of TCCH and has been for more than 20 years. We are actively engaged in leadership and advisory roles, as partners with the hospital.
Our high regard for the hospital is reflected by the fact that most of our group’s members have either been patients here or have family members who have been patients here at TCCH. Providing excellent care involves continuous vigilance and effort, and we remain dedicated to that goal.
-- The Anesthesiology Department - Twin Cities Community Hospital
