Hi, I'm Trina, okay. [crew indistinct] Hi, I'm Trina and I chose Midtown because of the family feel, the family atmosphere. Everybody tends to get along. We're a big family, but we do get disjointed but we all work together to care for our patients. I started here in the emergency department, a long time ago. And then I worked as a clinical supervisor for eight years and I've now progressed to being a clinical manager, on the post acute unit, which I love. This is a big family feel, the patients are even like family. Just going in and talking to them. So why Midtown? Because it's a big family.
