I want to commend your excellent staff for taking such good care of me when I was transported by ambulance to your emergency room. Pam, the nurse, Mike, paramedic and Stephanie, the doctor were all so gentle and kind as they explained what was happening as they did all the necessary testing. I will always remember their support and kindness. What an excellent facility you have in Carteret Health Care.

- Mrs. Glover (Wilson, NC)

This letter is a letter of appreciation. In June, I had emergency colostomy surgery at your hospital performed by Dr. Zavadzkas. From what I have been told, Dr. Zavadzkas saved my life. I want you to know from someone who was very sick at the time that the care I received was very special to me. The nurses who cared for me 24/7 were without exception – understanding – considerate – helpful – funny – fun – efficient – compassionate – gentle – they were all of that to me – and more. I just wanted to let you know that the care I received was very special to me – and taken for granted. I hope you will share this letter with them. They are a very special group.

- Mike (Swansboro, NC)

I owe my life and a huge debt for your professional, while personal and caring, attention. Doctors, nurses, ambulance team, technicians and all the support staff performed admirably and without interruption. No one choose to undergo surgery or stay 5 days in a hospital. However, when such did become reality, my family and I were duly impressed. As a single grandmother raising two young children, the process was more than disconcerting and the Carteret Health Care Medical Center was an impressive experience during a very trying time. To the team, large numbers of patients cannot be remembered within such a big, busy environment, but to the patients – you are appreciated. You all deserve much more than a thank you and job well done. Your attention, devotion, patience, understanding and professional attitude were a blessing. The community that is served by such a high grade health system, should be aware and appreciative. To be sure, I will be ever thankful.
