Voice of the patient
“My mom was in the hospital this past week. We both want to thank 300 West nurses and staff for the outstanding care she received from all of them. They were all very kind and happy. It really does make a patient feel better when someone caring for them walks in with a smile and kind words. Thank you again.”
Thank you for everything you do to support our patients and our community,
