I am sorry but seem to be having a difficult time finding where to send a letter of gratitude to. I wanted to tell someone about a wonderful experience I had at cornerstone medical imaging. Both my mother and I recently had bad experiences during the same test at different Kettering areas so I was very nervous with my most recent visit. The technician Barbara went above and beyond to make me feel comfortable during the test. She is kind, compassionate and made me feel like family. I will no longer go any where else but to her facility. She 100% represents her profession and the network in a positive light. I am thankful for Barbara

Kettering Medical Center, Unit: CTCU
My husband was recently a patient in CTCU. While I was visiting him one day, I lost my diamond wedding ring that I have had for over 35 years. Your EMS employee by the name of Beckie found it in the lady's room and made an effort to find the owner which happened to be me. I was so thankful she took the time to find me that I cried all the way home I was so impressed with her. Please recognize this valuable employee in a special way for her outstanding integrity.

We want to thank you for the wonderful care you gave our mother. You went over and beyond to keep us updated and aware of her health at all times. You were so thoughtful and it really made a difference to us for you to take time out of your very busy day to contact us. You even offered to talk to us after our mother was transferred to ICU. My mother was very scared and frightened when she arrived and after being under your care, she expressed such thankfulness that she was in the right hands to help her heal. Thank you again for all you did for our mother.

Brian (Bryan?) Unknown
Kettering Medical Center, Unit: Atrium Gri
I was able to thank Brian for what I witnessed but not to the extent of the impact it had on my day. I suspect he is humble and not one for attention but my hope is that this message will make it to his employers and peers. During lunch hours on February 4th, while waiting to place my order a few persons back from one of the registers Brian was working. He was helping a lady that was seemingly having issues understanding the menu, what she wanted and what she could afford. Brian was patient and sweet but the lady continued to have difficulties and was concerned she didn't have enough money to pay for her modest meal. Brian insisted and ultimately convinced her to let him purchase her lunch. Not only that, he left the register, personally prepared her meal and drink, brought it around the counter and walked her to a nice spot to sit and enjoy her lunch. I had just watched my first child come into this world the evening before and Brian's act of care and manner in which he did it of made my day. I hope that statement drives home the impact. Yes, these were small gestures but they were mighty. The kind of gestures you don't get to be a part of everyday but hope to be and can try to be. For Brian it was effortless and without thought. Our birthing experience at Kettering was amazing; from the nursing staff and other specialists, to the dietary, team, housekeeping and the Atrium Grille. But Brian stands out. Thank you.

Jaycie, You were beyond amazing to my family and I while you were my grandma's nurse. It wasn't the outcome we hoped for or even expected, However, your care for her and us was above and beyond, even before you knew I was an employee. I can not thank you enough for making us all feel at ease, treating us like family and answering all of our questions, as I know we can be overwhelming. You are truly the meaning of our CORE values, and Grandview and the Network are lucky to have you!

Tiffany, Once again, I want to thank you so much for the care you gave me during the overnight hours of February 3-5. Wednesday the 3rd/4th was particularly difficult and you prayed for me and with me and I felt God's presence in the room as you were working. I know that you're very busy, but you made me feel that I was the only person you had to care for that night. You are the best in your profession and I'm glad you use it to minister to those you come in contact with. God's blessings to you and your family! David Blumenstock

Thank you, Stan, for making my stay at KBMC from January 4th-6th the best it could be. Stan really cares about the “people” (he doesn’t call them patients) he meets. He has his own church and is just an all around great guy! He really connected with me on a personal level and I felt very comfortable talking to him. His groups were amazing, and he talked a lot about God during them. Thank you again, Stan The Man!

I have never in all of our times at a hospital experienced such an amazing nurse. The tenderness and dignity that you offered my father in his time there renewed my faith in your profession. Your kind words and willingness to spend time talking with me helped more than you can ever know. You are an amazing, kind, generous and devoted person and words can never express my thanks to you.

I received my first COVID19 vaccination Friday, Jan 29 at the Salem Avenue location. It was the best organized medical event I have ever encountered. The many staff on hand kept a steady pace, were pleasant, smiling, friendly, caring and upbeat. None of them made me feel pressured or uncomfortable in any way. They engaged in a bit of small talk which put this oldster at ease. The wait after the shot went quickly because staff checked on my well-being several times. It was such a positive experience that I almost didn't want to leave. Kudos to your planners and big stars (and socially-distanced hugs) to those at the entrance all the way thru exit. WELL DONE, EVERYONE!!

And also I had left message when after I got appointment my handicapped husband could not, web site offered me to call and leave message. Another great ting happened- day or say later was told he could come along with me.

Kettering Medical Center, Unit: ED
I wish to thank a wonderful, kind, brilliant nurse named Lauren from the ED. I came in yesterday 1/26/2020 with many symptoms that made no sense. The doctor ordered so many tests, labs, meds, and IV's to be started. Lauren was nothing by kind and compassionate the entire time. Always a smile behind her masks, and checking in with me hourly or before to make sure I was ok. I do not go to the ED often, and was so very scared. And, with Lauren as my nurse, I was put at ease that she would advocate for me if my needs were not met. I know front line workers are working so hard these days, but to truly now know how busy the ED was that day, and to feel like I was her only patient, says a lot. Thank you Lauren, for making my experience so much less frightening. You were made for this job. Thank you! Heather Denchik

This was my forth baby and if I wish I had had a nurse as caring and educated as Cheryl for all of my deliveries. She was an advocate for me and helped voice my needs quickly and safely. She came in the next morning to check in on me and was so kind. Everyone deserves a nurse like Cheryl during a delivery! She eased my stresses of having a baby during a pandemic. She is one of a kind ! I delivered back in August, but have been wanting to thank her! I can’t remember her last name, but she was the charge nurse that morning on August 13,2020.

Yes it was their job to help, but it really felt like more than that. They all gave their all to us and caring for me and baby Maverick. I honestly could not have done it without them and I’ll always cherish them, even though they have dozens of patients, I hope they remember me, Caleb (the father) and baby Maverick. They made our stay SO much more enjoyable and they listened to every little thing and concern I had and I’ll always be so grateful to those women. Thank you all, especially Autumn since she was the nurse right after I delivered Maverick. I will never forget the absolute comfort they brought us.

Chenell, Thank you sooo much for all the help while you were my nurse. I hate to bother people with my requests, but you never made me feel like a burden. You promptly responded to my needs, and in fact, you tried to meet my needs before I even asked. I wished you were my daytime nurse since I was asleep most of the time I had you! When you are away from your family and alone it’s so hard and depressing to be at the hospital. Thank you for easing the sadness and being so kind to me. You are a wonderful nurse! -Marissa Barber
