Dr. John Huff is grateful for family — both at home and at work. “In many cases, my coworkers have served as an extended family when the pandemic prevented me from being with my family,” says the medical director of the Baptist Health Hardin Hospitalist Group. “Even during these difficult times, they help make it such a joy to come to work at Baptist Health Hardin every single day!”
It’s been “nothing short of amazing,” Dr. Huff says of watching dedicated colleagues provide excellent care despite personal challenges — from juggling childcare to grappling with their own anxieties caused by COVID-19. To support these co-workers and put gratitude into action, the hospitalist team donated to the HMH Foundation COVID-19 Emergency Assistance Fund.
“When we act on our gratitude,” he says, “I think the blessing is oftentimes bigger for us than the person we blessed.”Thanks, Dr. Huff, for sharing your experience and insights!
