Real Stories of Exceptional Care

Here are just a few excerpts from the many stories of exceptional care shared by grateful patients. If you are making a tribute gift, be sure to let us know what was special about your care!

"I found myself in a 'near-death' experience. Had it not been for her observations and timely suggestion to come to SSM Health St. Mary's to 'meet the team' and have things checked out, I might not be here to tell about this wonderful lady."

"His passion for medicine and his compassion for children and their families radiates with every patient he cares for."

"I will never forget her not only for being a wonderful nurse but also for being a friend when my husband and I went through a parent's worst nightmare only minutes into parenthood."

"Our Guardian Angels are all the nurses and CNAs in the MICU that took care of me. They made me feel relaxed and comforted. They were so compassionate and caring.  My family and I truly appreciate all they did…they are truly my Guardian Angels. I cannot thank them enough."
