I had surgery to repair my torn meniscus in my left knee on Monday December 22, 2014 at Wheaton Franciscan Healthcare. This was the first surgery I’d had there, or locally, for many years but was pleasantly surprised at the level of care provided me. From the moment I checked in at Admissions to the nurse/s taking care; the anesthesiologist visit; and the surgeon’s visit prior to surgery; I was shown a high level of care. Each one exemplified excellent patient care of which I will never forget. I was admitted afterward due to a reaction to either the pain medications or anesthesia. The nurse, Ashley, who was in recovery was very patient and accommodating 5 hours post surgery. Each nurse that cared for me from that point on was on top of their game. Upon my release, I did express to the nurse how pleased I was with the level of care I received at Wheaton Franciscan. I want anyone to know that whatever the reason they may go to Wheaton, they will receive top notch care. Many thanks to all of you and Merry Christmas and Happy New Year too!
