Imperial Manor, Parkview-Heights

admin-2015Dean Dragon, Administrator

My Wife Terri and I are to celebrate 32 years of love and commitment to each other this July. We have two daughters, both are in college living in Cheyenne, Wyoming. This was one of the primary reasons for us to choose Imperial, for us to be close to our girls.

For fun I like to travel and see different places, go Charter Fishing on the open oceans and improve healthcare delivery using evidence based research. Terri and I also like the outdoors and our favorite place to visit is Yellowstone National Park.

My immediate goal for Imperial Manor/ Park Heights is to provide stabile leadership which is what I see as the greatness need for the sake of the residents, employees and community at large. I am often asked what I do as a Healthcare Administrator. Although the answer can be very complex because it is an intensely regulated profession where imperfect human beings take care of people with a large range of challenges,….I like to think that I inspire others. I inspire others to do the right thing, at the right time for the right purpose. It is more important to help people find that virtuous purpose in my opinion within themselves than almost anything else that I could do with my leadership position. Employees need to realize that they are a part of something bigger than themselves as an individual and community member, and that the purpose is worthy of that investment of themselves.

Here is something I find inspiring which is off of the Second Hand Lions movie. It is called the speech that every boy needs to know about becoming a man. Of course, it applies to all of us regardless of gender.

” Sometimes the things that may or may not be true are the things a man needs to believe in the most. That people are basically good. That honour, courage and virtue mean everything ; that power and money … money and power mean nothing. That good always triumphs over evil. And I want you to remember this…. that love….true love never dies ! Remember that! Doesn’t matter if it is true or not, a man should believe in those things , because those are the things worth believing in. “

 

In the coming months we at Imperial Manor/ Park Heights will learn that what we do is worth doing. That taking care of the Great Generation and others in our care takes pride and a professionalism that is uncompromising. Anything else is just not good enough for our residents and community members.
