Great care from pool, hospital, EMTs

Thank you Valley View Hospital and Hot Springs Pool Lifeguards and EMTs.

My husband and I were enjoying the pool on Nov. 8 when he started getting short of breath. The quick actions and personal care the lifeguards rendered was professional and caring. They got the ambulance there, and the EMTs were wonderful and administered care for him with great patience (if you know my husband, enough said). The personnel at the hospital were equally professional and caring. Though a very sick man, we had another tragedy, we lost our son at St. Mary’s in Junction. Through this they were understanding and showed great compassion for my husband. I just wanted to say thank-you all for being there and doing what you do. You are all a special kind of wonderful.

Thank you,

Mary James
