Grateful to all at Portage Health

To the editor:

We don’t know what we have until you need it.

This letter is to give a big thank you to the doctors, nurses and attending staff at the Portage Hospital, ER, surgical team and ICU. Two months ago I brought my husband to the ER not knowing that a few hours later he would be recuperating from surgery to save his life.

We are very grateful to Portage Hospital for having an excellent ER doctor such as Dr. Neufeld, surgeon, Dr. Sears and their staff. It’s great to have these facilities so close to home and not having to be transported out of the area.

Thank you very much.
