Doctors save lives, but their importance goes far beyond that. Doctors also make a difference by helping patients minimize pain, recover from a disease faster or learn to live with a disabling injury. A patient's ability to enjoy life, even if they can't be cured, makes a huge difference to them and to their families. If they can go back to work after an illness, that benefits their employer, too. And, that's only part of what makes doctors important to society.

We all want doctors who:

•Respect people, healthy or ill, regardless of who they are
•Support patients and their loved ones when and where they are needed
•Promote health as well as treat disease
•Embrace the power of information and communication technologies to support people with the best available information, while respecting their individual values and preferences
•Always ask courteous questions, let people talk, and listen to them carefully
•Give unbiased advice, let people participate actively in all decisions related to their health and health care, assess each situation carefully, and help whatever the situation
•Use evidence as a tool, not as a determinant of practice; humbly accept death as an important part of life; and help people make the best possible arrangements when death is close
•Work cooperatively with other members of the healthcare team
•Be proactive advocates for their patients, mentors for other health professionals, and ready to learn from others, regardless of their age, role, or status

And our community has one of those doctors.

Dr. Vandenbosch is one in a million.  She is not only an asset to our community and area, but a role model for that ideal/perfect doctor that everyone wants.  Dr. Vandenbosch is compassionate, understanding, empathetic, honest, competent, committed, courageous, respectful, and optimistic.  Losing her at the Baker Clinic is not only a devastation to the community and to her patients, but will cause the clinic to crumble.  The Baker Clinic is what it is, because of what Dr. Vandenbosch stands for.   

As concerned patients, family, and friends of the NOMC/CHS Baker Clinic, we are petitioning the dismissal of Dr. Michelle Vandenbosch, M.D., from the Baker Clinic. It was brought to our attention that Dr. Vandenbosch is being released in order to have a nurse practitioner oversee the care of the current patients and any new patients of this clinic.  This is not an acceptable quality of care for the patients and is a negligent decision by Community Health Systems.  As patients of the Baker Clinic, we deserve to receive the best of care possible, and that is impossible without Dr. Vandenbosch.  

Please join me in supporting this wonderful doctor by joining me in petitioning the dismissal of Dr. Michelle Vandenbosch.
