We recently spoke with CEO of The Valley and South Eastern private hospitals, Neil Henderson, who offered his insight into the success of the company as well as its plans for the future.

In order to continue this spread of positivity, the “Love Your Work” program was instituted to recognize individuals that were doing something above and beyond their line of duty.
