Excellent Environment & Care by Alishia*

I am from Kansas and was recommended to NRHS from a friend four years ago for a specific surgery. Was there for about a week, had excellent care with caring staff. Four years later, needed another surgery and knew the Dr. that performed my last operation could perform this one as well. They made my stay comfortable and made my hubby welcomed there too. Thank you to all of the staff and medical profession for being there!

I just wanted to say Thank You to all the staff at Norman Regional Health System. Your hospital and staff are top notch. Some of the things I noticed about your hospital is how quiet it was, how clean it was and just how calm and happy the staff appeared. As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, I have worked in many places and know that when the services are excellent, the staff must be happy. So hats off to all the administrators as well. We will always be grateful this hospital serves our community.

I had a wonderful experience during my stay. I had wonderful nurses and assistants. The names I'm not sure if I remember correctly but Weston, Tamesha (I'm not sure on that name). They were the nurses and then Christie was an assistant.

AMAZING group of people! by Family Member of Patient*

I am writing to inform you of the AMAZING group of people that work in the Radiology Department at the Porter Campus. My daughter is 14 years old and autistic and had to have a swallow study performed. Both my husband and I thought that this was going to be a challenge and most likely a fail but we were wrong.

From the moment we went through Registration and waited to be called to go to the Radiology Department, every employee we encountered was so compassionate and understanding with our daughter (she didn't want to wear the hospital wrist band, and we were told "No problem, let's not upset her").

Then, Patricia came to get us and she was so kind and patient with our daughter even when she was crying and saying "No". Patricia even showed her what was going to occur during the swallow study by getting on the machine and demonstrating everything!

Aaron, another technician, came in to check on my daughter (most likely because he heard the noise) but he was so nice and told her how good of a job she was doing and gave her a high-five.

My daughter still did not seem like a "willing participant" but it wasn't until Matthew came in the room. (It just so happens that the name "Matthew" is her favorite name). Matthew was AMAZING, once he realized that she liked his name, he asked her "to drink the orange drink for Matthew and let Matthew take a picture of your stomach".

I cannot say enough good things about the people in the Radiology Department. And the most wonderful part is the technicians did NOT know that I was an employee, they were just great people doing the "right thing" for a special needs child and her parents!

I wanted to pass along such a positive experience that we had in the Radiology Department at the Porter Campus, I am very proud to be working at a place that has such AMAZING employees! Please send my most sincere Thank You to the Radiology Department at Porter; they were appreciated more than they will ever know, in both their actions and words!

Thank you for the outstanding care! by Geri Bankston*

I was recently a patient at your facility for a number of weeks following a devastating brain bleed. From the ER, to the medical ICU. to the med/surg unit and the PT department, I received the most compassionate care, even when I wasn't the easiest patient to care for. Your entire staff never stopped encouraging me. I have been a RN for the past 33 years and have never worked at a facility where a culture of caring is so much a part of each department. I'm alive today because of God's grace and the excellent care I received at your hospital. I can't thank you enough.
