7 “I am pleased to recommend this facility. Everyone I interacted with acted in a caring, professional manner. The facility was very clean. The cleanliness and the staff instilled a lot of confidence that my surgery would be a success.” —Ruben Varela “I love this hospital (as much as you can love a hospital)…. Staff is amazing, and I feel they genuinely care about you.” —Christina Slater “Went in for ‘in and out’ surgery. From the time I walked in, every single person I dealt with was so friendly and helpful! I have to say the volunteer lady, who greeted all of the patients as they waited for surgery, was sweet and a very thoughtful touch. The head nurse who helped me was amazing. She had me laughing the entire time, which really made a scary situation so much easier to handle. Even the assistant who wheeled me to my car was so patient and nice. I was really impressed!!!” —G. Miller “In life, it’s incredibly rare to find an individual who truly cares for others in their time of greatest need. Even so, how much more astronomical is it to find an entire group of people willing to go above and beyond the standard expectations of care we, as a family, had for our father?” —the Fama family
