"Not long ago I was admitted to the hospital with a serious -- urgent -- medical condition. From the moment I arrived in the ER, I was afforded diligent, exceptional care. Indeed, within minutes of my arrival at St. Mary's ER, I was undergoing a vital procedure.
Dr. Reinsvold and the entire cardiac team were consummately skillful and attentive. I never doubted for moment that I was in excellent hands. Over the days which followed, I had superb care in the ICU and then, on the newly renovated wing of the hospital.
Dr. Bledsoe, Dr. Vick, other attending physicians, nursing staff, indeed, the entire St. Mary's staff (administrative and medical), were models of courtesy, patience, and kindness. Everyone took the time necessary to answer our questions and see that we were getting the best possible care.
At my age, I've had the opportunity to interact with many hospitals, large and small, urban, and rural, across many years, and I can state confidently, that St. Mary's met and exceeded the care my family has experienced at these other facilities. I am very grateful that Russellville -- and the river valley -- have such an outstanding medical institution. "
