I believe the health care system is at a unique inflection point: Emanate Health is emerging from the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, ramping up postponed medical care services for the one million people in the San Gabriel Valley and expanding its footprint in the region. I look forward to working closely with our Executive Leadership in the coming months to help Emanate Health's continued success in health care delivery." Bernacki said.
