Thank you for keeping the Abbotsford Regional Hospital clean. Thank you to staff for being helpful. As a business owner I have come to hospital often and the staff have always been helpful with locating the rooms our staff members are in. Bigggggggg thanks!!!!

Our son was born June 30, 2013, 5 weeks premature and IUGR (Intrauterine Growth Restriction). He spent a bit of time in the Royal Columbian Hospital NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit) and one nurse in particular, Clare, made a difficult time bearable. I still remember how lovely she was. Hope this message of thanks can be passed to her if she still works there. We now have a two year old daughter named Claire - the name was always my favorite and I remember telling Clare in the NICU if I ever had a daughter her name would be Claire (the French way) :)

My purpose in writing this message is to thank Doctor Altman for his kind understanding and good care.
I had been in emergency, at the Langley Memorial Hospital, on March 14th, 2017.  I probably arrived at about 12:30 a.m. or thereabouts. I was in a lot of discomfort both physically and emotionally.  
Dr. Altman was very understanding when I expressed my situation and about my past.  He was kind to me and I know that I didn't make a very great impression!  I had been at the hospital all night and I saw him at about 6:00 a.m. Dr. Altman understood my need for privacy and my anxiety. He suggested that he could examine me after I had something to calm me down, and he also had me brought to a private room because he knew that I could handle that. Dr. Altman also expressed his sympathies when I shared with him about my past.
I have been thinking about finding an appropriate way to say thanks ever since. I also want to thank the nurses who were on duty at the time. They were also very nice to me.

I want to acknowledge Kerry Norman from the Treasury Department. I first contacted Kerry to set up pre-authorized payments for my mom's Home Support Services and recently to process final payments and receipts. Every contact with Kerry was pleasant, professional and compassionate. She provided great service! I appreciated Kerry very much for being so knowledgeable, informative and caring.
