Since my bypass surgery in 1992, I have visited your emergency service more than once, this time early Sunday morning with persistent though mild chest pain. I wish to send special appreciation for and to Dr. Kevin Hoos, for his attention to detail, kindness, and advice. Early Sunday morning, his encouragement of abundance of caution to stay for additional testing Monday morning, resulted in Internal Medicine physician Dr. Thomas Merrill arranging a thallium stress test with a happy result and a much relieved patient and wife.

My granddaughter was in the NICU over the last weekend. She was released on Wednesday. I have to tell you the staff in the NICU are true angels! They are loving and caring beyond belief. I just wanted to let everyone know what beautiful people Norman Regional has there! They are incredible!

(I was) not (having) one of my best days but when I went to the ER at Moore Medical Center (they took) great care of me. I received the help I needed. I was put in (a room) where I received the best care. I am glad to share that everyone who took care of me on the unit at Moore Medical Center was awesome. The lab assistants that came in were outstanding. All the staff went out of their way to make sure I had all I needed and was comfortable.
An Honor by Norman Regional Health Foundation
Friday, April 17, 2009
The family of one of our patients has asked me to relay their appreciation for the exceptional care and kindness rendered to their loved one who passed away very early this morning. Daughter Toni Carter gave permission to share their story including their names, if we wish.
Over the past twenty years Norman Regional has cared for Betty and Jim Chase on several occasions, always providing wonderful medical care with utmost compassion. Betty passed away some time ago, in her home. This morning about 1:30, Jim passed away in PCU. Jim was 88 years old, had a full life, and was blessed by the ability to live independently until very near the end. Last night he visited with Toni and other family members. He asked to have his beloved dog visit him, since he had been with us for two weeks, and he missed her. During the night, Jim's heart stopped and he quit breathing. By his own request he was not resuscitated.
Today, Jim's daughter, Toni, who works for a different hospital in the metro area, called me to tell me that she was certain nothing would please her dad more than to direct contributions in his memory to our hospital, as a way of expressing appreciation and of providing continued exceptional care for other patients in the future.
What an honor for our Foundation to accept those gifts on behalf of the excellent work done by our clinical staff, so exceptional that even when the outcome is sad, the patient's family feels good about their experience with our health system. On behalf of the Chase Family, thank you, All.
