Cape Coral Hospital – a gem in our community

To the editor:

I recently had the opportunity to be taken to the emergency room at Cape Coral Hospital. When 911 responded to my call for help, they asked me where I wanted to go. In that one instant, I realized in retrospect just how important that one decision really was! You see, when you select a transport location, you could be choosing not only a hospital-but, also quite possibly, your entire care team for the next several days. Let me explain.

The skilled ER team went to work diagnosing my symptoms and in less than a half hour had delivered a diagnosis of a very serious health problem that couldn't be ignored. I was admitted and transported to Surgical ICU, while a team of doctors and nurses proceeded to form a top-notch surgical team and schedule a surgery for three days later. Everything went off without a hitch, and I know now that I had a team of top surgeons and surgical assistants who delivered an outstanding result.

I was incapable of choosing a surgical team on my own, so the hospital took the lead and did what I could not do for myself. One day led to another. I had attentive, round the clock care. A couple of days following the surgery, I was moved to a room on 4E. Again, I feel I got simply the best care day and night that any individual could get anywhere. Everyone there was a dedicated professional doing a great job to get me back to good health quickly.

We are quite lucky that we have such a great acute care facility of medical professionals right here in our own backyard. The next time you have a choice of hospitals, I can tell you that choosing Cape Coral Hospital is a GREAT choice! Thank you to everyone who cared for me there. You were amazing!
