I’m sure that everyone expects me to be biased when it comes to talking about hospital care at Mendocino Coast District Hospital. I have no problem telling anyone that if I have to be in the hospital this is where I would want to be. I think that our medical staff, nursing staff, clinical and support staff take a back seat to NO ONE.
Last week I had an opportunity to put my money where my mouth is. I was the recipient of my first, ever, surgery (it was a hernia repair surgery). I have NO doubt that EVERYONE that comes to MCDH for surgery receives exactly the same care that I received. A special thanks to everyone that assisted me in having a superior hospital service, including patient registration, laboratory and of course, outpatient surgery. A special thanks to my nurses, Beth Ward and Kathy Nielsen. Also a thanks to my doctors, Dr. Linda James and Dr. John Kerman. I wanted to have a successful surgery and a quick recovery. I am well on my way. I had surgery last Wednesday and I was back at work 5 days later on Monday. That is what I call a “Center of Excellence.” Thank you to all.
