Our family would like to express our most sincere thanks for the outstanding care our father received during his recent and unexpected hospitalization. While visiting us from out of state he fell and hit his head. Given his age and how far he was from familiar doctors and caretakers, we were particularly concerned about the nature of the care he would receive at Samaritan Medical Center. In the two weeks of his stay, he was cared for in the emergency room, ICU, physical rehab, PCU, and the fourth floor; each department handled his treatment with the utmost respect and care. Even in his most precarious moments, every staff member talked to him to explain procedures, called him by name, and treated him as an individual.
The staff was just as respectful and caring for our family, explaining our father’s changing condition, treatment options, and providing much needed support. The kindness and courteousness of everyone we encountered at Samaritan Medical helped ensure our last days with our father were comfortable and peaceful, and we are very grateful for the care.
