LETTER: Hospital is a great assetSt. Mary’s Hospital of Superior is a great asset to the city.
To The Telegram:
I had my first ambulance ride on March 16. Not a bad ride! The paramedic was very good (I think his name was Tony). I was at Superior hospital with Dr. Sinisa Vujkovic and then needed to be transferred to Duluth St. Mary’s for more extensive testing. Dr. Anthony Rayner saw me three times on that day. Because of the seriousness of my condition, Dr. Furqan Raja was called in. These doctors all work above and beyond the call of duty. Superior and Duluth can be so proud of the quality care we have in the Twin Ports.
All of the nurses and team workers worked together so well. Nobody tried to get out of work but rather looked to see if they could help. Those were the quality staff on 9W. The TLC was appreciated.
Dr. Karen Foster, hospitalist, was also a great addition to my list of doctors. So many talented people all together in one place.
The story continues. Since my immune system was down to zero, I got bronchitis but was not hospitalized. April 11 brought me to the ER with extreme breathing problems. From the time I entered the ER (the day before the snowstorm) until I was able to go home on April 15, all of my experiences were very positive. During the storm, Dr. Pierpont took over for Dr. V. Both are great people and great doctors. Dr. Pierpont told me that miracles happen every day. I do believe!
Thanks to each and everyone in Superior and Duluth that helped me get on track for recovery. Much appreciated.
Superior also has a wonderful chaplain. St. Mary’s Hospital of Superior is a great asset to the city.
