Thank you for care

I just wanted to say a big thank you to all the wonderful people at the Red Deer hospital and Central Alberta Medical Imaging Services.

I just wanted to say a big thank you to all the wonderful people at the Red Deer hospital and Central Alberta Medical Imaging Services.

I was sent to the hospital for emergency surgery on Sept. 17, after a brief illness. I started the day with an appointment with the very professional people at CAMIS, and then a follow up with my doctor later the same day.

My doctor deemed it serious enough to get me to a specialist at the hospital the same day, and he stated that I needed surgery right away. So I ended up in the emergency department, and by 6 p.m. I was in surgery. The staff at CAMIS, the emergency department and Unit 21, everyone was professional, friendly and took the time to make sure that I was as happy and comfortable as I could be during this time.

Many people complain about how bad it is at the hospital. All I can say is: they are very hard working. They are doing the best that they can with the resources that they are given, they have to deal with a lot of people and situations every day.

In my opinion, they are doing a great job. They are taking care of everybody who walks in their door, and they are doing an excellent job at it.
