My husband was admitted to Hartford Hospital after suffering a stroke. I have to tell you how absolutely amazing the people are at this incredible institution. From the care on neuro to stepdown to rehabilitation at Conklin, we were cared for by kind, diligent, courteous individuals who went out of their way each and every day. Their professionalism, character and charisma are truly over the top.

I’ve been going to the Cancer Center in Plainville/New Britain for some time now. What a world of difference this facility makes. It radiates such a positive atmosphere. Having the doctor’s office, lab, radiology and infusion all in one building I find to be pretty remarkable. I feel welcome from the time I walk into the building until I walk out. The staff is professional, friendly and caring. They also have a sense of humor, which I always look forward to.

I want to thank everyone in the Backus Emergency Department that gave me the most wonderful care and kindness. Everyone was so very kind, made me comfortable and free of pain as fast and gently as possible.

Everyone, and I mean everyone, who attended to me in any way made me feel like they truly cared about my welfare and did a great job making me feel confident in what I was going to be going through. My nurses spent a lot of quality time explaining everything I needed to know prior to and after the procedure. You are real heroes.

My husband, George, died on July 11 at MidState Medical Center. His care was true excellence in nursing. The good bedside care and respect given to my husband was superior. I worked as an RN for more than 40 years and know excellence when I see it. You should be very proud of your staff.
