Lucky to have such good medical help

Nelson resident appreciates timely and professional staff at local hospitals.

My wife experienced a bleed in one of her lungs recently. We were near Grand Forks and the staff at the hospital speedily called the ambulance from Trail.

The following morning the Trail ICU doctors called a lung specialist in Kelowna, and my wife was flown to Kelowna General Hospital, and within three hours a diagnosis and repair was completed to repair a ruptured blood vein in one lung

The ICU doctors and staff were tremendous and gave all that was required to keep my wife alive and nursed back to health. We congratulate and thank the doctors, nurses, and ground and air ambulance staff in the excellent coordination and caring that was supplied in the health care operations in Grand Forks, Trail, and Kelowna hospitals.

We are so blessed to have these highly trained and dedicated people serving the people in the Okanagan and Kootenay region of B.C.
