My grandfather Fred Boykin was a nuero-surgeon at this hospital. He worked closely with Dr. McDonald and other surgeons to make the hospital one of the best places to go in times of crisis. My mother, my father and myself have all worked at the institution for over 10-25 years. It is time for everyone to realize that only through teamwork, good communication and showing the community a united front will we continue to maintain excellence. Both UH and LSU MS need to start working together to build a better hospital instead of bickering about the past. Now is the time for change, now is the time to stand up; now is the time to show our community that we care and will fight for the future!
