Employees Express a Cornucopia of Gratitude

It’s the season to give thanks, and many of us are thankful for our families, our health, our jobs and other blessings we enjoy throughout the year. As the 2022 Thanksgiving Day holiday approaches, some of our Memorial Hospital of Gardena employees have shared their thoughts about those things for which they are most grateful this year.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!
