Bob Schuur retires from Borgess-LeePublished 12:21am Wednesday, May 9, 2012
After 55 years of dedicated service to Borgess-Lee Memorial Hospital, Bob Schuur has decided to retire.
“Few people today can say they’ve worked at the same place for over five decades,” said Joy Strand, administrator and chief operating officer of Borgess-Lee Memorial Hospital. “Bob will be greatly missed. He always went the extra mile, whether it was delivering a precise image to aid a radiologist in making an important diagnosis for a patient, or simply offering someone a much-needed smile or laugh. It has been a true honor knowing and working with him, and we wish him much happiness in his retirement.”
Schuur served as a radiology technologist (RT) at Borgess-Lee, taking routine X-rays and computerized tomography (CT) scans. He also supervised RT students at the hospital during his tenure. Besides passing his boards and achieving his registry, Schuur’s most-memorable moment at Borgess-Lee was celebrating his 50th anniversary at a special ceremony with his mother at his side. In retirement, he plans to travel and finish up his “man cave,” which will house his extensive M&M’s collection.
“It’s been a privilege working at Borgess-Lee with so many wonderful, caring people,” Schuur said. “I consider you all my second family. It has been a blast, and the 55 years have gone by so quickly.”
