Everett and Bernie DuBois: Fueling Quality Care

When Everett DuBois was diagnosed with prostate cancer, Virginia Mason’s team used the latest technology — the da Vinci® robotic surgical system — to give him the most precise and effective treatment. And when Bernie DuBois broke her nose, our team gave her immediate care, not only putting her on a quick road to recovery, but performing extensive testing to ensure the break didn’t affect her breathing.

“We’ve had nothing but good experiences with Virginia Mason — and we feel very blessed.”

Everett, a retired Burlington executive and avid Mariners fan, and Bernie, an artist known for her elegant oil paintings, have been Virginia Mason patients for the better part of 40 years. They are members of our Concierge Medicine program, which gives them 24/7 access to their physicians — and they’ve made a series of donations to help other patients get the same great care.

“The concierge services give you immediate access to qualified physicians you know and trust,” Everett says. “We think of it as an insurance policy, and it gives us peace of mind to know that we can reach our doctors right away if we need to.”

This expert care helps explain why the Dubois support Virginia Mason. They have made generous donations to our Concierge Medicine program in hopes of making this service accessible to more people. They also support prostate cancer research, backing Virginia Mason surgeon John Corman, MD, and his studies finding ways to make treatment easier on patients.

“Our doctors are knowledgeable, honest and very competent,” Bernie says. “We’ve had nothing but good experiences with Virginia Mason — and we feel very blessed.”
