Two thumbs up for Terrace, B.C. hospital, staff

I feel very fortunate to live in this part of the country and have these services available.

Dear Sir:

After several emergency stays in Mills Memorial Hospital in the past year, I would like to express my appreciation for the treatment received. I would like people to realize what a good facility we have in Terrace.

There are many different departments and services that are taken care of by dedicated and caring healthcare professionals.

We are also fortunate to have visiting specialists, several who have served our area for many years, who are a real asset to our community and should be acknowledged for their dedication and visits.

I, and many others, have had health care problems that required treatment in other communities so we are very fortunate to have the Medevac service also available.

In passing, I would like to mention the Dr. R.E.M. Lee Hospital Foundation and the Hospital Auxiliary, who, along with the support of the community, have been a big part of enhancing healthcare to our area through many equipment purchases. Having such equipment here has minimized the need for patients to travel to other locations for treatment. The foundation’s latest project is the updating to the endoscope suite.

Granted, not everyone has the best experience but most leave satisfied with their care.

I feel very fortunate to live in this part of the country and have these services available.

Bill McRae Sr.,

Terrace, B.C.
