Dr. Le considers Baptist Health Hardin to be invaluable to his practice and most especially his patients.
“I take care of a lot of asthma and allergy patients and there’s such an excellent support staff that I know when they leave my office and go to another provider, they will be well cared for in the Baptist Health Hardin system,” he said.
Serving on the Baptist Health Foundation Hardin Board offers a tremendous opportunity to further improve Baptist Health Hardin and the health of our region, he said.
In addition to funding breakthrough initiatives, Dr. Le said that the Baptist Health Foundation Hardin has an important role in education and advocacy for Baptist Health Hardin.
“So much of what the team at Baptist Health Hardin does goes unnoticed and unrecognized,” he said. “People need to understand there is a tremendous work of value being created here in our local community and they deserve our support and help.”
