"On Sept. 29, we lost our beloved family member, David Reel. He will always be remembered as a loving son, brother, dad and friend. We would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who helped while David was in The McDowell Hospital. The care he received was remarkable. To doctors St. Bernard and Wysowkinski, special thanks for your compassion and understanding in this difficult time of our lives. Also to the nurses, technicians and all others who helped care for David this past year, words cannot express our gratitude to each of you."
-Kim Reel & the family of David Reel-
"Everything has been kept very clean - the staff has been wonderful and housekeeping has been very quick to respond when needed. Thank you."
"Over the last several years I have had all too many occasions to use your Emergency facilities - most recently last week. I was most impressed with the speed, professionalism, and concern your staff in ER demonstrated. They worked quickly with everyone of the group who worked on me doing their part in a knowledgeable and competent manner and did so in an obvious caring manner. The changes you and Mission have instituted at McDowell are greatly appreciated."

"Everyone was very nice in the Physical Therapy department and worked with me anytime I had to change anything. I really appreciate all the help I have received from Dianne and Anna."
"Everyone was great, but I especially want to recognize Renee Fender, RN, in the OR - I am not an easy patient regarding IV's and she was very good. I also appreciated the "Feel Better" card signed by staff, that I received in the mail - very thoughtful."
"Mary Ruth Hollifield in OR was just wonderful. She listened to what I had to say. I felt very comfortable with her, if I had to go back I would love for her to care for me. She is JUST WONDERFUL. Very understanding, care. They were all great and friendly. She just made my day."
"Elizabeth Abshire in OR was very kind and compassionate. She was very knowledgable about what my husband needed. I felt like she truly cared about her patients. Everybody that cam in contact with my husband was very kind and caring."
"Brenda and Otis, the ER nurses, Dr. D'Angio and Dr. Morrow were all extremely nice. Very professional. Treated me with respect. Very informative. Otis and Brenda helped me with my anxiety."

"I found the Mammogram Department, and especially Cinda, was very helpful and friendly to me. The Mammogram Department also corrected the mistake that was made on my name. Cinda was especially caring and understanding. She explained everything she was doing. I really give this department high marks."
