Praise for St. Charles

The morning of July 27 I went into a medical crisis that required a visit to the St. Charles Hospital, emergency room in Bend. My wife and I are recent (four weeks) transplants from New Jersey, and the prospect of navigating an unfamiliar medical system — particularly one which is reputedly stressed — was nearly as intimidating as my situation.

I would like to echo the comments made by Mr. Luce in today's Bulletin. I, too, was a patient in the St. Charles Emergency Room in the past few days. I arrived early in the morning and was seen right away. The on duty doctor was thorough and very professional, as was every member of the staff. I feel very fortunate to have such a wonderful medical facility here in Bend. My thanks to those in the ER as well as my wonderful cardiologists.
