Lakeland stay was superior to “big name” hospital
Please allow me to add my name to the recent letters that have been published praising the care at Lakeland Regional Medical Center, St. Joseph. I was recently hospitalized for 22 days —12 total days at Lakeland, and 10 at a “big name” Chicago facility, so I feel well qualified to make comparisons.
The care at Lakeland was far superior! Every aspect of my stay locally was outstanding, from the ER to the wonderful cardiac care personnel. The nursing staff is amazing in its genuine care and concern. My sincere thanks to them, and also to the doctors who gave their all to my treatment — Dr. Arora, Dr. Kuhnlein, and physician’s assistant David Chalupa. It would be impossible to thank everyone there, but right down to the test technicians, the meal personnel, the transporters, the housekeeping staff, and the coordinating administrative personnel — all treated me with sincere courtesy and respect.
How blessed we are to have this great facility and personnel right in our neighborhood!
