I have a warm place in my heart for St. Joseph’s Hospital. When I arrived at the ER, septic and in critical condition, the doctor correctly diagnosed and stabilized me, and sent me by helicopter to a St. Louis hospital that had specialists to treat my condition.
The doctor at St. Joseph’s saved my life. If there had not been a hospital close by, I would not have survived. After spending five weeks in ICU then four more weeks in St Louis, I was transferred back to St. Joseph’s for rehab.
How wonderful it felt to be coming home to Highland and St. Joseph’s Hospital where the caretakers know me and my family, and friends were close by. The physical therapy department was wonderful and finally got me back on my feet and walking. The caring, devoted hospital staff gave me the physical and emotional support I needed. St. Joseph’s Hospital is a vital part of the Highland community we call home.
