Timothy L. Byers: TMH staff is top notch

The residents of Moffat County have a wonderful resource in the Surgical Department at The Memorial Hospital in Craig. As a traveling eye surgeon I operate in several locations throughout the intermountain west and I am always impressed by the facilities and staff at The Memorial Hospital. The new hospital building is welcoming and patient friendly – from the inviting fireplace in the lobby to the pristine pre-operative area only steps away from patient check-in. The ultra-modern operating rooms are designed to support the needs of the patients and the surgeons. However, the true treasure at The Memorial Hospital is the staff. These folks bend over backwards to make the surgical experience as easy and seamless as possible.
