"Maria Todd came to our location in a small rural community with a Medicare-certified hospital, a cluster of Marriott-branded hotels, a tiny general aviation airport, Uber, Lyft, and taxi services and restaurants within walking distance. In three hours, she had everyone talking and collaborating. Two weeks later, we were ready. Three years later, we've hosted 30 patients for orthopedic joint replacement procedures."
