Hello. On May 24 at 9 AM I was an ED patient with a severely broken arm. Your nursing staff went above and beyond to secure my comfort and well being during this painful experience. Terri, my caring nurse and Meghan were two nurses in the fog that I can be so thankful to. Dr. Habeeb was very understanding. I have a long recovery ahead but I got a good start at your facility. Hope you all have easier days ahead. Thanks again. Rick

I am writing this note to thank you so much for everything you have done throughout your career, but especially throughout this past year. It takes someone truly courageous and brave to continuously battle against this pandemic and help so many different families.

Not everyone can say they have gone through the past year with the same amount of bravery and dedication you have given. So again, thank you for everything you have done and Happy Nurses Week!!
