Recognizing excellent care in Carman

In early 2016, due to the seriousness of my illness, I was directed to seek help from from medical specialists in a major hospital in Winnipeg.

They suggested that to save travel and time some of my secondary medical procedures could be performed locally in Carman.

This has proved to be a very positive arrangement.

In a number of serious emergency situations I called on local medical staff for help.

In spite of being asked to play a secondary role, I marveled at the excellent courtesy, the competence, and wise counsel received from staff locally.

My recent experience has given me a new appreciation for our local hospital.

As a community we can be very proud of this “healing resource” available to us locally.
