Better Than Ever
An employee for 26 years and a patient for nearly as long, Brad McFarland has seen Hennepin transform over the years. He has always considered HCMC one of the best, and even chose to have his kidney transplant surgery here as well as all of his primary care. In recent years, however, Brad has also seen HCMC make positive strides in meeting the needs of patients and families that extend beyond excellent clinical care. For Brad, who works in the telecommunications department, one of the most important things we can do is support the lines of communication between patients, families and providers. "I have seen how much of a priority it has become to help patients stay connected with their loved ones,” says Brad. "Families and friends have a very important role on the health care team, and we have a responsibility to encourage their involvement in patient care." There is no doubt that Brad is proud of HCMC and the care provided here, now more than ever.
