"Heart attack"

About: Box Hill Hospital Maroondah Hospital Yarra Ranges Health

(as the patient),

On the way to see the doctor earlier this year, I felt really "not right". My wife drove me straight to Maroondah Hospital. I was admitted, diagnosed and passed on to Box Hill hospital. The Paramedic Team was marvelous. At Box Hill I was fitted with a stent and spent the next five days there. I was most impressed with my treatment throughout. Most professional.

Subsequently, I attended a cardio rehabilitation course at Yarra Ranges Health Centre in Lilydale. Once again, I was greatly impressed by the staff. So helpful and cheerful. It was a breath of fresh air to be among them. I learned so much which I am sure will help me in the future. They all deserve a good pat of the back. Thank you to them all.
