February 3, 2021

Happy New Year to all! I hope your year started on a good note even with the chaotic environment we are operating in. We have lots to be thankful for despite differences of opinion on how our country and planet should be managed. A few of these reasons:

  1. The COVID-19 vaccine continues to be administered to the most at risk among us. While the path of this unbelievable work could always be improved, those involved are literally doing everything they are able to work to increase our health safety. We see this daily in their efforts to make the vaccine available to as many people as possible.
  2. Our new Presidential leadership team has new ideas on tackling the problems which we face. It is important to remember that they are trying to tackle the issues which have been identified as most important.
  3. The nation is working diligently to get children back to the best possible learning environments physically in schools and virtually where that is determined to be the best possible solution.
  4. The balance between assuring public health due to the COVID- 19 pandemic along with the many other areas of impact caused by this pandemic are constantly being reviewed and debated. We have a chance in our country to participate actively in this debate even with differing opinions as to this balance.
  5. There has been a general recognition among all of us that destructive behavior is not an appropriate way to disagree with each other and clearly has no chance of being a method to change anyone’s opinion about anything.
  6. Our healthcare systems-our clients have done a phenomenal job in unbelievably difficult conditions to help assure our safety. It has been a year since the pandemic began and these people are to be lauded and admired for constantly putting their well being on the line on a regular basis. Thank you!

Please remember to listen to each other. We are all entitled to our opinions on the various issues we face. Only with compromise to see other points of view will we be able to work together to make our world better.

At The Rybar Group, we work every day to assist in bringing resources to our clients.  We are working remotely continuing to use the best possible technology to bring value in everything we do. Know that we are dedicated to give you the best possible assistance as you serve your communities. Thank you once again for your diligence. We are so proud to serve the Healthcare industry.

Ronald K. Rybar, President
