Kudos and Kindness fro Aspen Times readers (Feb. 19, 2017)

A great day on Aspen Mountain

How refreshing to have a positive, uplifting morning on Aspen Mountain. Jeff Hanle of Aspen Skiing Co. generously gave away wonderful prizes and provided the usual delicious breakfast for the seniors.

I’m sure I speak for all who were there. Thank you; ’til next year!

Senior moments on Aspen Mountain

We’d like to thank Aspen Skiing Co. for the adventure of Senior Day on Aspen Mountain. It was extra special, and on the morning of my birthday!

I had never ridden the gondola in the winter (as I never attempted to ski Ajax) so this was awesome.

The views from the Sundeck were fabulous, and breakfast with new friends from the Senior Center made this extra special.

Thank you for this wonderful day.

Grateful for hospital’s new doctors

Thank you to Aspen Valley Hospital for your progressive and proactive hiring of two new medical doctors. I met Drs. Heather Murphy and Michael Murphy at the cross-country ski race Feb. 12. They moved to Aspen a few weeks ago from Milwaukee.

Dr. Michael Murphy is an ophthalmologist/eye surgeon who will be full-time at Aspen Valley Hospital. Dr. Heather Murphy is an otolaryngologist also at Aspen Valley Hospital.

Having Dr. Michael Murphy in town is wonderful for me because I currently see a glaucoma/cornea eye specialist at the Mayo Clinic in Arizona. Aspen Valley Hospital has a relationship with the Mayo Clinic thus allowing me to now see an eye doctor here in Aspen, who can be in contact with my eye doctor at the Mayo Clinic in Arizona. This will provide me with quality medical care closer to home.

Welcome to Aspen, Dr. Heather Murphy and Dr. Michael Murphy.
