Meet Adam Span. Adam started at the hospital in the early 90s as a Respiratory Therapist. He helped save lives through aggressive ventilator management and ensure lung healing from some of the worst cases of ARDS. Adam was part of the team that pushed the envelope of ARDS care. He continued his work while going back to nursing school. After nursing school he continued to kick butt and save lives. He now is a guardian over hearts in our Cath lab. Adam is one of the most compassionate nurses I know.
