Carol Balleck: Thanks for ‘excellent care’

To the editor:
I recently had my second hip replacement and because of referrals from friends and the local community, I went to Yampa Valley Medical Center in Steamboat Springs.
What a great group of people from the clinic to the day of my surgery. I was so impressed by the staff there and wish to say many thanks to everyone involved.
Dr. Brian Bromberg is a great surgeon with a good smile and sense of humor.
Jenny and the entire OR staff made me feel at home. Thank you to Aaron at the pharmacy, Tamara in charge of the joint, hip and spine ward, and all the wonderful nurses who work with her.
Thank you, Sonya, Sandy, Kelsey, and Johnny. You were all wonderful to me and provided great personal care. Also, thank you to all of the CNAs who took care of me, Kim, Sara and Gulya.
The physical therapy and respiratory group as well. And everyone else that was there and I forgot your name, I truly thank you.
I have been to both hospitals in the valley here over the years, and I can say for sure now that Yampa Valley Medical Center will be our hospital of choice from now on.
Everyone talks about the hour drive, but after the care I received, the drive is nothing, and by the amount of people I saw from Craig up there, I'm not the only one who feels that way.
Thanks also to my family and friends who called, sent cards, and gifts. You are the best people I know.
Thank you all again for the excellent care from myself and my family.
