#EverydayChampions You Can Count On

This year, during football's biggest game of the year, and also during everyone's favorite international winter sports competition, we're proud to feature this television commercial that showcases what champions mean to us. From our physicians, dedicated to finding answers to even the toughest questions; to our nurses, tirelessly serving our patients and families in their hour of need; to all of our staff and volunteers, diligently doing their part without hesitation; and to our patients, fearlessly tackling even the most daunting diagnoses: YOU are champions. Every. Single. Day.

As you'll hear in the video above, champions don't just show up on game day. They show up every day.  They come to fight. Play through the pain. They tackle each moment as if someone's life depended on it.

In the darkest moments, that's when champions shine the brightest.

#EverydayChampions, FilMD-style

When we interview physicians for FilMD, our doc-umentary series, we always ask what they love best about what they do, what made them decide to go into medicine, what they're passionate about, and so much more. In this special edition of FilMD, watch some of the most inspiring things they had to say, and you'll quickly see why they're part of our everyday champions squad.
