Thanking VIHA for great service

On March 19 I had to call 911 with chest pains. The telephone response was calming and reassuring and they stayed with me until the ambulance arrived.

The paramedics were professional, reassuring, kind and the response was timely and effective.

When we arrived at Nanaimo Regional General Hospital’s emergency ward, I received the best and timely treatment from nurses, doctors and other staff. I couldn’t ask for more than was provided and the treatment was effective.

Thank you to all the medical professionals we have through VIHA — we are very fortunate to have these services here and I’m very grateful for the wonderful care.
