Summit Pacific saved my life

Dear Editor;

I can’t say enough about the variety of services now available at the Summit Pacific medical care facility here in Elma, which local health providers can now access on the part of their patients.

In my case, I am most impressed with the portable MRI unit and the X-ray services which assisted my doctor to diagnose my primary complaint but also discovered a serous health condition that neither I nor she was aware of because I was not exhibiting any symptoms.

A few days later, I had need of the emergency care department for a complication connected to this medical condition. I went in at 10:30 p.m. and within the space of approximately 5 to 7 minutes was being seen by the on-duty physician. My problem was diagnosed, treated, and I was out the door within 20 minutes.

When the hospital relocated from McCleary to Elma, I had the privilege to have been serving the citizens of Elma as one of their councilmen. Then, as now, I still affirm that the entire project was one of the finest examples of the use of taxpayers money’s I had ever witnessed. CEO Renée Jensen, her board, and the entire staff of Summit Pacific can, and should be, justifiably proud of the timely, quick service they provide.

To all of the Summit Pacific family, thank you for being here and the outstanding job you do on behalf of your patients.
