Letter: What would we do without MCH?
It’s easy to forget how lucky we are to have Monadnock Community Hospital here in Peterborough. Around the country, local hospitals are closing and people are left traveling long distances for routine and emergency care.
I recently had surgery at MCH and can’t stop raving about the amazing care I received. From the pre-surgery appointments and tests, to the surgery to the two days in-patient recovering I was treated with kindness and professionalism every step of the way. During the highest point of the COVID surge, I felt like their only patient.
I wish I knew the name of everyone who cared for me. I would like to thank each and every one of them. There are many I never met, working behind the scenes or during my surgery. The ones I did meet offered help, provided clear instructions and obviously cared deeply for their patients.
In addition to the wonderful MCH team were soldiers from the New Hampshire National Guard delivering meals. These unexpected workers brightened my day each time they came in the room in their military uniforms.
Please join me in showing your appreciation for the MCH and their team by putting a positive review on Google. Use their services whenever you can and thank their workers when you see them. Our local hospital and its workers are a vital community resource, and what would we do without them?
