Meet the Farmer
"When I was first contacted about providing produce for the hospital, I said that our farm was at capacity and couldn’t take on any new clients,” Bob McClendon, proprietor of McClendon’s Select, recalls. “But I toured the hospital and what I saw at CTCA® was something very different. I saw a commitment to the patient, a comprehensive approach to treating the whole person. I decided right there we needed to be part of this healing process."
One day while looking out from the hospital’s dining room at 25 acres of farmland, the farmer and the chef together realized an incredible opportunity.
