Marshall, El Dorado County’s largest healthcare provider, has proudly unveiled “Resilient: The Marshall Medical Story”, a feature-length documentary showcasing complex and inspiring stories of care. Filmed entirely on location at Marshall’s hospital and clinics, the documentary profiles providers and patients as they navigate life’s most difficult ... and joyous moments.

Working within Marshall’s clinics and departments and spanning Emergency, Oncology, Pediatrics, Birth Center, Surgery, and Cardiology, filmmakers Dulcinea Productions captured profoundly personal and revealing moments. Patient safety and privacy were always at the forefront throughout the production process, but the film manages to provide a unique glimpse into the various aspects of healthcare not often seen by non-professionals.

“When you film live within the care environment, “observes Siri Nelson, Marshall’s President and CEO, “absolutely anything can happen. What the documentary team captured however, in real time, confirms what we already know about Marshall. Our ‘every person, every time’ commitment is evident throughout our staff and throughout our departments and is absolutely elevating the care our community receives.”

“One thing you ‘see’ in the film, but which may not be immediately obvious,” remarks Mindy Danovaro, Executive Director of the Marshall Foundation for Community Health, “is the critical role of philanthropy in Marshall’s success. Marshall was founded by, and for, this community and our foundation donors provide support for each of the areas shown in the film. Rural, independent hospitals and healthcare have unique needs which our community helps to support.”

The documentary was recently unveiled at red-carpet screenings at the Regal Cinema in El Dorado Hills and at the Placerville Cinema where community leaders, donors to the Marshall Foundation for Community Health, and hospital representatives sat alongside the providers, patients, and family members featured in the film. Before these events, the documentary was screened for every member of Marshall’s staff, providing an opportunity for celebration and reflection.

“The documentary’s title, Resilient, honors the indomitable spirit of not only the healthcare providers who have just experienced some of the most challenging and emotionally taxing years of their careers,” notes the film’s director, Will Agee. “It celebrates the courageous spirit of the patients who step through Marshall’s doors on some of their hardest days. The extraordinary results of the meeting of the two is what drives the film.”

Resilient is now available for public screening on Marshall’s YouTube channel and can be viewed by visiting:

The film’s release coincides with a strategic rebranding campaign at Marshall, designed to highlight its best-in-practice providers and the nationally recognized services available in the heart of our foothills community. Billboards, bus shelters and advertisements are helping to spread the message that patients will receive an extraordinary standard of care at Marshall; the same or better than they would find in any large city.
