Grateful to MCH and ambulance

To the editor:

Thanks to Monadnock Community Hospital and Peterborough ambulance.

Our eastern Monadnock region is so very fortunate to have Monadnock Community Hospital and all its excellent services for our people. I recently went to its emergency department, was admitted to MCH with my whole medical and surgical history reviewed (all on MCH file). The two surgeons began working to locate another hospital which to send me in case they found an unforeseen problem too complicated for MCH surgery. I was pleading for surgery here because my many other surgeries at MCH all had been successful.

Our surgeons, Drs. Vuocolo and Peppers, still sought a more comprehensive facility and were able to transfer me to UMass Medical Center in Worcester where I was able to wait for my intestinal problem to clear.

Also, loads of appreciation for our ambulance service. I was in very capable hands for a comfortable, reassuring transfer to Worcester.

Please remember to support theses community services when donations and tax dollars are being sought.
