Emergency surgery

The nurses and staff were very attentive, I couldn’t fault a thing.  I having nothing but praise for the hospital and staff.  We are very lucky in Ararat.

I wish to thank you all for the wonderful care and support during my stay for an operation.  Respecful and outstanding service.  Thank you.

Excellent care, on time, quick and efficient.  Staff all worked together and appeared to work harmoniously.  Calm and friendly atmosphere, yet utmost professionalism displayed.

As a tense person, all the staff and doctors were wonderful.  I, as a patient, was overwhelmed with the care.  Thanking you.

I was very impressed with the care and concern I was shown by all staff during my visit.  They were friendly and made sure I was well informed about the procedure I was having.

From the moment I was admitted to the time I was discharged, I felt very assured that all my attending medical staff were very professional and well drilled in their routines.

As usual nothing but the ‘best’ treatment, but what also stood out was the professional interaction between staff members.  Good to see and hear.

The staff and surgeon were very caring and efficient and made me feel safe and happy before and after my procedure.  Highly recommend to anyone.
