Letters to the Editor

Phillips letter: Thank you

On Oct. 31, 2017, I was taken by ambulance to Saint Alphonsus hospital. I was very ill with pneumonia, sepsis, a collapsed lung and infections in my neck.

I spent two weeks in ICU on the fourth floor. It was a scary experience, but made better by the excellent care I received from the doctors, nurses and other staff. I was, without fail, treated with the utmost care and expertise during that time.

I would also like to thank Dr. Zimmerman and his staff for their excellent care. He immediately came in on that Friday evening to perform emergency cervical surgeries on me. I will be forever grateful for the gentle care and expert professionalism that he and all the staff at Saint Alphonsus provided me in the past year to the present.
