My family and my home.
"For 42 years, I've lived within these walls and have seen HCMC through the eyes of a patient, a student, a teacher, a surgeon, a leader – and even a musician," said Dr. Don Jacobs. It all started in 1972 when he was a medical student, and today he is our chief clinical officer. Across all his roles, his focus has always been patients. "If you put yourself in the patient's shoes, you can be quickly guided to the right answer." His entire career has been spent listening to patients and helping create a healthcare system that is centered around their needs. Dr. Jacobs says it has been a tremendous privilege and invaluable gift to share in the lives of his patients and colleagues. "My career is nearing an end. What remains, first and foremost, are the people – our patients, our staff, and our partners in care. I always want to stay connected to HCMC."
