Appreciates quality of care from MFPD, hospital

To the editor:

Due to a family medical emergency, I recently called 911.

The Mehlville Fire Protection District first responders arrived quickly to provide transportation to St. Anthony’s Medical Center. They were knowledgeable and professional and took the time to answer my many questions regarding the condition and status of my family member. I want to thank the MFPD for its prompt response and professional care.

I also want to thank the wonderful nurses and caregivers at St. Anthony’s — in particular Jackie, Amanda, Liz, Kevin and others — for their work in helping my relative get well and return home. The kindness, compassion and positive outlook those four showed toward my family member will not be forgotten.

South county is a great place to live and along with quality schools, these caring professionals have only reinforced my decision to purchase a home in Oakville.
