Lincoln Memorial Hospital
Lincoln Memorial Hospital Board of Directors
It is with profound gratitude to ALMH
and staff that I am writing this letter. Words cannot adequately
express our gratefulness to the entire staff at ALMH.
Since my stay was lengthy, I met at
least 30 professional caregivers plus many volunteers in
their respective capacities. Each was extremely professional, which
-- of course -- is expected, however their "caring and compassionate
spirit" shown through like a "bright star." We cannot say enough
good things about ALMH as a hospital and all my caregivers.
We especially thank Dr. Ken Sagins for
his hard work to get me on the road to recovery. We appreciate so
very much the time he takes to keep the patient and family
updated. We know from experience this is not always the case, and he
is to be highly commended for his "bedside manner."
We also want to thank the nurses and
nurse techs on Med/Surgical second floor for all they did to help get
me on the road to recovery. "Thank you" does not adequately express
our "heart's feelings." However, THANK YOU!!
The city of Lincoln has every right to
be so very proud to have ALMH in our midst. It's a real bonus to
Lincoln to have the BEST HOSPITAL AND STAFF to be found anywhere.
Thank you again.
