Things at Bronson are better than ever, with no end in sight.

October 31, 2014

by: Bruce Mills

After just receiving a thank you card from the Adult Medical Unit, I just can’t hesitate any longer to express my gratitude for the tremendous professionalism displayed by the staff there during my hospital stay between October 16 and October 24, 2014.

From the physicians to the RNs to the patient care assistants to the phlebotomists to the food service crew to even the environmental services staff, I was treated with respect, kindness and good humor at all times without exception. This made my stay at Bronson a positive experience in spite of the seriousness of the event that caused me to be hospitalized.

As a former Bronson employee (Security, 1974-1978), it would be easy for me to say that things aren’t like they used to be. Speaking as a patient, I have to say that things at Bronson are better than ever, with no end in sight.

I was blown away at the professional and caring attitude.

This is my first time coming to Bronson for an outpatient procedure and it was an awesome experience! Not many people are happy about any kind of surgery experience, but I was blown away at the professional and caring attitude of Mike Bush and nurse Kerri-T-C! Thank you guys for making me relaxed and confident in your service. God bless you both and don’t change a thing! Thank you again, Debra Lockhart-Correll.

As I was pregnant thinking about going through labor was worrisome for me being the first time. The doctor and nurses were great, friendly and cheerful, they checked my newborn out often after birth and thoroughly before he went home after two days healthy 7.3 pounds.

Bronson hospital and their staff is definitely the best in the nation.

I just want to say Bronson hospital and their staff is definitely the best in the nation and I can understand why they have won past awards for excellence and outstanding care. But that is not even all that I was impressed about I had found the Hospital to be very clean bright and warm. So for that i thank all the staff and doctors.

Thank you Bronson for being one of the best places out there.

I was only 23 when diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer which traveled to 20 lymph nodes in my left arm pit. I then had chemo at two different places. I had my bilateral mastectomy in Chicago. I had radiation at Bronson in Battle Creek,MI. My Doctor is Dr. Mudge. Dr. Mudge is a great man! He makes you feel comfortable and explains every option you have, he gives you the pros and cons. His medical staff is one of the best! His nurses were always so nice to me. The nurses made me feel so comfortable and they always had smiles on their face. Everyone there is so happy and helpful. This facility is so professional, so dedicated, so friendly that you would think you were with family.

Thanks Dr. Mudge and his medical staff for helping to save my life. Thank you Bronson for being one of the best places out there.

I always dreaded going to the doctor but now I enjoy every visit!

Dr. Amber Thomas is a wonderful doctor. I’ve seen many providers in the fourteen years I’ve been sick and Dr. Thomas is by far the best. She has that humility, personableness, and wisdom that accompany a true healing vocation. She always makes me feel so at ease that I can tell her anything. She never judges; she sympathizes. She seems to know all the best specialists personally and has an uncanny sense when matching us up.

I always dreaded going to the doctor but now I enjoy every visit!

Appreciative and thankful for their tenderness

My 3 y/o daughter broke her arm falling off the monkey bars. The people at Vicksburg Bronson ER were fabulous with her. Karen the R.T.R was especially tender when getting her X-ray. I was really appreciative and thankful for their tenderness toward my daughter and myself.
Thanks for making a awful situation much more bearable.
Thanks,
Madi(3y/o) and. Becky(mom)

Bronson got me back on the course!

I’ve always loved to golf. But as my heart condition got worse, I couldn’t do much of anything anymore. Even walking across the room left me feeling tired and out of breath. Fortunately for me, the doctors at Bronson helped change all that. They told me about a new heart surgery called TAVR that could actually give me my life back. And that’s exactly what happened. Within days of my surgery at Bronson Methodist Hospital, I could walk without feeling out of breath and I wasn’t tired anymore. My nurses, they were great, too. They talked to me, listened to me, even gave me pudding and popsicles in the middle of
the night. Better yet, I’m back doing all the things I did before: mowing the lawn, going to the gym and playing golf with the guys — terrible as ever.

We were treated with compassion, professionalism, and given very helpful information by all the staff

Our family member was admitted for surgery for a BKA and transferred to CCU. We were treated with compassion, professionalism, and given very helpful information by all the staff. We would like to acknowledge Tim, Jon, Kelli, and Jaime, which were the nurses we were fortunate to meet during our family member’s stay, and also Peggy and Sandra from palliative care, and another Sandy from discharge planning (I think). Everyone was so friendly and caring, and my cousin ( D.T.) was treated with compassion and dignity. We can never thank you enough.

Very patient and kind

My daughter had to have x-rays on her arm due to a painful bicycle fall. We went to Bronson Vicksburg Hospital and were very happy with our experience. The x-ray tech, Karen, was wonderful with my daughter, explaining everything about how to position her arm and where the machine would take the picture. Karen was very patient and kind to my daughter, knowing that some of the positions were not super comfortable. When the x-rays were complete, Karen invited all of us, including my younger son to watch her process this information. She explained everything, answered questions and was great with my kids! Thank you Karen for taking time in your day to show us the pictures and explain your processes to us! Both the kids and I found it quite fascinating. It’s always cool to be able to see your bones up close! Thanks again!
