Outstanding care

Dear Editor:

My husband had to undergo a surgical procedure at Aspen Valley Hospital’s day surgery … a minor operation under a local anesthetic. But with a defibrillator and his blood thinners the preparation was quite complicated.

We were greeted congenially by the receptionist at day surgery and almost immediately ushered in by three of the most professional, yet personable nurses – PJ, Heather and Trudie. Our trepidation was immediately put to rest – they triple checked everything with thoroughness and with humor. We knew no mistakes would happen here. It’s nurses like these that give a hospital a good name!

Of course, Dr. Bill Rodman, Dr. Gordon Gerson and Dr. Kelly Locke orchestrated this operation from beginning to end with their great expertise.

We just wanted to publicly thank all of them for going the extra mile with their care.

Tan and Bill Clark
