Team Karpf's Surprise Birthday
the past several months I have listened to Dr. Karpf's presentations
where he would say that UK HealthCare would take over control of the new
Emergency Department of the new hospital on April 15, 2010. He always
pointed out that his birthday was the next day and this would be the
"best birthday present ever" when he took ownership of the new Emergency
Department. This is a significant milestone in our construction
project. On April 16, I had the pleasure or some would say, task, of
getting Dr. Karpf over to the basement of the new hospital for a
surprise birthday party. For all of you that know Dr. Karpf, surprising
him isn't easy and getting him over to the basement for something other
than a tour isn't easy either. But we pulled it off. His wife, Ellen,
who shares her birthday on April 16th as well, joined us as we
celebrated "Team Karpf" with cake and punch. As you can see from the
pictures below, he was in fact surprised!
below is Dr. Karpf receiving his very own key to the new hospital from
Larry Blackburn, Project Executive for Turner Construction Company. So,
little did Dr. Karpf know that his birthday present was truly going to
be the new hospital!
