2012-13 Chief's Report

Thank You, Dr. Mark Price


Dr. Mark Price, former HCORP resident and orthopaedic surgeon in the Sports Medicine Service at UMass Memorial Medical Center, recently returned from a nine-month tour in Afghanistan as a member of the US Navy Reserve. After years of wresting with his desire to join the military, Mark finally decided to become a member of the Navy Reserves last year and has served his country in an admirable and most extraordinary way since. Dr. Price worked with a multinational team of doctors, essentially following the Green Berets. They built a mobile hospital and performed surgery as needed, sometimes under fire, as our military forces engaged the enemy. On Father’s Day, Mark learned that he would receive the Bronze Star for his incredible work. This honor was awarded at a military ceremony in Newport, Rhode Island on July 14, 2013. Congratulations Mark!
