Thanks and blessings to everyone here. You're all very special and do a tremendous job. Wish more hospitals were like you!!!"

"Both Renees in the OR were great. This is the 2nd procedure I have received here [McDowell Hospital]. I cannot tell you how grateful I am to have this exceptional facility in our area. Keep up the great work!"
"It was very considerate of the hospital to call and check on me the day after my visit!"
"Barbara Blankenship, RN, made my stay in the recovery room as comfortable and pleasant as possible. All the nurses and staff in the holding room, procedure room, and recovery room were professional, caring and very competent. They all seemed dedicated to providing the best care possible. Everything was explained to me along the way and they made me feel at east throughout the process."
"Connie and Denise in the OR - no better personal one-on-one service than one can receive in the finest hospitals. Connie and Denise were awesome. My husband is 74 years old and both ladies were attentive to every need that he was experiencing and treated him with the utmost kindness and respect as if he was a gentleman of great nobility. I, as well as my husband, appreciate everyone at the McDowell Hospital - I will now highly recommend McDowell Hospital as the hospital to seek medical services at."
