Timothy L. Byers: TMH staff is top notch

To the editor:

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.

The overall stay for my surgical patients is less than 3 hours from the time they arrive at the front door until departure – an impressive feat. The fact that my patients give The Memorial Hospital a 92 percent overall satisfaction rating is a testimony to the surgical staff’s success.

I congratulate The Memorial Hospital for the excellent care that they provide for me and for my patients, and I encourage members of the community to take advantage this excellent local resource.
