CCU by Jensen*
Saturday, April 28, 2012
The past 6 years has taken us to the CCU in Norman several times. It started with bypass surgery and now stents. My husband has received the best of care. Penney was our nurse the first hours after bypass and she took excellant care of my husband. She had been his nurse twice now at the HealthPlex and it is wonderful to see a familiar face when you are so concerned about a loved one. Thank you Penney for your continued service.
Outstanding by Former Patient*

Outstanding is the best word to describe Dr. Gaston's supremely compassionate staff, especially Anna. What an asset she is to the Cancer Management Staff. Her daily consistency and her joyful spirit contributed to my overall well-being during the 15 day treatment. Dr. Gaston stands alone as far as "bedside manner." He took the time to show me PET Scan results, explain exactly what was going to happen and how I would be affected. Dan Ottis is an outstanding manager of this department. Friendly staff clearly take their cues from Mr. Ottis. Monty in scheduling is the first of many friendly faces in this first-class run Center.
Eternally Grateful by Former Patient*

This is to thank all of you who made what could have been a frightening, tedious and uncomfortable experience comfortable,
friendly and endurable. All three of the technician/nurses who worked on me were well-trained, competent and professional.
This was to be expected. What prompts this letter is that they were also kind, friendly and caring. It has been a long time since
a hospital visit has been made endurable by the willingness of the technicians to treat me, an elderly woman, like a member of
A young woman made the ultrasound exam, explaining what she was doing at each step and maintaining a casual,
conversational tone that let me know that I was a person to her and not just a job. In fact, everyone in the facility was
considerate in that way. I never once had to wander down a long hallway, alone and lost. I was accompanied by efficient and
courteous staff with each change of examination room. The waits between the three procedures were well-timed and brief.
The dreaded “stress EKG” was administered by an angel named Vern. By the time we had gone through the
lengthy procedure, he seemed like a friend. As I returned to the big x-ray machine for the second time, he came in with me,
introduced the technician there and left me, not alone, but with a temporary family. It was a long morning, and I became very
tired. My “team” was patient and encouraging, teasing me about my hopes for securing coffee as soon as possible, even if by
IV. And when it was all over, one of them walked me to the door of the coffee shop to make sure I found it. I am simply
astounded, relieved and eternally grateful for your staff and their professional and humane approach to their work.
Heartfelt Thanks by Former Patient*

I was treated at the HealthPlex. I just wanted to write a personal thank you to the doctors and nurses that took very good care
of me. I am unable to remember their names and faces but I was told by my family that I received excellent care from the staff.
I owe credit to all of you that I am alive and well. For this I am most grateful. Thank you for everyone's hard work and
dedication to their job. With a special mention from my daughters the following nurses; Penny, Kelly, Karen, Carol Ann, and
Anne. Thank you for your personal attention to the needs of my family and friends that were at the hospital with me.

Wednesday, February 29, 2012
To the nurses who cared for my baby and I during our visit: Bonnie, Jonna, Laura and Dawn and all the nurses at Labor and Delivery, thank you so much for your help and care. My visit at MMC was the best hospital stay I have ever experienced. You all are the best nurses ever.
