Hospital helpers give meaning to holiday

I wish to express my heartfelt gratitude to several members of the community who came to my aid during my recent emergency and hospital stay. Thank you to: Danielle, the 911 dispatcher who received my call; David Ray and the 49er Fire Department; Chris and the other EMTs from SNMH; the doctors and nurses from SNMH’s Emergency Department; Drs. Douglas Johnston and Thomas Boyle; and last, but definitely not least, the awesome nursing staff of SNMH’s One South Department! This Thanksgiving has a new meaning because of you!
