PRAISE FOR PRINCETON DOCTORS AND HOSPITAL

There once was a time, not too long ago, that this town only had two doctors. There was not enough medical staff to keep the emergency department of our hospital operational 24 hours a day.

Fortunately, that has changed, due to the actions of some dedicated community members working with Interior Health to implement a recruitment plan to attract more doctors to practice in Princeton.

We, the residents of Princeton and the surrounding area, have to be thankful and proud that we now have five doctors and excellent hospital service.

I recently spent three weeks in our hospital requiring extensive care for a very serious infection. I was most impressed with the care I received, knowing that there was always a doctor on duty or on call. Even the food was wonderful – never the same meal twice.

The compassion and friendliness of all the nurses and support staff was the absolute best and was certainly a great help in keeping up my morale.

I will be forever thankful to you all.
