Letter: Keep Parkview hospital open in Brunswick

I am an employee of Parkview Adventist Medical Center in Brunswick. This is the second hospital in the Mid-Coast area where I have worked. I can honestly say that we have the most dedicated patients I have ever seen. The reason is that they are made to feel cared about, loved and like family. The doctors to the housekeeping staff and everyone in between appreciates our patients and makes sure that their experience here is a positive one.

Many times patients have said to me that they dislike going to Mid Coast Hospital. These patients deserve to have a choice of where they go to receive the medical care they need. When patients are ill, and frightened, they deserve to go where they know they will be treated with dignity and respect, and that is Parkview.

Please help us keep Parkview open, so that our loyal patients can continue to receive the care they need in an environment that fosters healing in a caring and loving manner.
