Great care at FMH

To the editor: I would like to thank all the personnel, staff and others who make Fairbanks Memorial Hospital what it is in order to provide the services that it does — from the time I entered the emergency room, through my stay, until the moment I left and for each visit thereafter. The personal care and professionalism shown is outstanding and greatly appreciated.

To the janitors who clean, the people/orderlies who clean the rooms and make sure the beds are clean and changed daily, the security staff that ensures our safety, to the kitchen/dietary and dishwashing staff, thank you ever so much.

To the certified nursing assistants, licensed practical nurses, registered nurses and doctors, thank you for your care. Also, the Radiology Department and Labs Department, thank you. Last but not least, the Oncology Department staff, my doctor and nurses, thank you for all you do.

I love you all, with much love and gratitude, thank you.

God bless you all.
