"Patients treated with such professionalism, kindness and dignity"

About: The Townsville Hospital

(as a parent/guardian),

I have had 4 elderly family members attend The Townsville Hospital in the last 6 months and I wish to congratulate every nurse, doctor, surgeon, cleaner, orderlies and ancillary staff member. We are so very pleased with the care our family members have received. They have been treated with such professionalism, kindness and dignity. We have been in many wards- ED, med 2, 3 & 5, sub acute, cardiac care, and attended your clinics.

And what about your wonderful volunteers - they are priceless. God bless you all.

It's never easy to be visiting hospital but we appreciate that everyone is doing their very best and it does matter. Many thanks.
