Avalon Park, FL is about to lose a wonderful doctor because Florida Hospital has refused to provide for their practice which she runs any additional medical resources, like another doctor or a nurse practioner. Florida Hospital has spent lots of money on advertising their Healthy 100 initiative but is not walking the walk with Dr. Burns. Dr. Burns is a caring, overworked, overwhelmed professional who has three children and I just found out is leaving our neighborhood. She needs and deserves the ability to balance her work and her family life. So she has turned in her notice but Florida Hospital, who owns her practice does not see anything wrong with working her way too many hours and not providing her the support she requires to continue to be successful. She has been a victim of her own success. Unfortunately, the entire community has been suffering becuase Dr. Burns' schedule is too busy for us to get in to see her when needed. And now we are losing her altogether.
Please help us ask Florida Hospital to be a healthy role model and provide a partner doctor or at least a couple nurse practioners for Dr. Burns. We have waited a long time to get a truly wonderful doctor out here and we need her!
Florida Hospital needs to provide Doctor Beth Burns with support personnel to allow her a work/life balance so she can continue to take care of her Avalon Park patients and her children.
