“Mother just had major back surgery there.  The staff is incredibly friendly and each day the chief of surgery comes in to check in on everything.  The nurses take the time to get to know you and the doctors spend lots of time making sure you understand everything that’s going to happen to you and patiently answer all your questions. This is then followed by the chef who comes by to check to see if your meal was enjoyable and if there’s nothing on the next day’s menu that you like, they’ll go out and get you something else! Amazing!  The bathrooms in the rooms are supposed to be nicer than some 5 star hotels. My mom has been blown away by the service from this hospital.  They really have created something special here.” – David B.
