I want to thank the wonderful nurses and staff at Great River Medical Center who cared for my daughter Tami during and after emergency surgery Friday night.

Their quickness, professionalism, good nature, as well as their humor after all was safe and she was in her room, was all part of the medicine needed for Tami and our family to recover.

Especially, thank you to Dr. Marshall, Dr. McCoy, and Dr. Phillips and E.R. staff who were in surgery with Tami, and thanks to the nurses in the Family Center for their great job at their professions, and for also showing how much they care for the person. Each went the extra mile and beyond as if it were their own family.

A hemorrhage after an earlier surgery is rare, but your preparedness, knowledge, and quickness saved a life. Our family is extremely grateful.
