The Vines Hospital

Active Duty Military Patient: “I learned so much about myself and others.”

I just want to thank you for creating HOPE and giving me the opportunity to come and gain the tools to help me manage my PTSD. I learned so much about myself and others while I was here. I am not 100% but I am leaving better than I arrived.

May you continue to be blessed for giving us “HOPE”
Thanks to “HOPE” I have gotten it right
My light is shining, my future is bright
From this day forward I’ll live my best life
Listen up depression I don’t want you around
I’m a woman and I’m standing on my Odessa Ground
Thank You “HOPE”

Hampton Behavioral Health Center

Mom’s Review: “The quickness of her care as we checked in was amazing and reassuring.”

My daughter attempted suicide.

I had to let go of her and leave her here in the adolescent program. The quickness of care as we checked in was amazing and reassuring. She has so much group time, school time, etc. This is superior to what we would have received in the hospital by us. I feel they are listening and building her up. There’s so much more to be done, but that’s on us. Watching these people jump into action was amazing.

I am so thankful.

Wellington Regional Medical Center

Mom of Newborn: “Thank you, Wellington Regional, for saving my son and me!”

My son was born early at 26 weeks. When he was born by C-section, we didn’t hear a cry — just a gurgle. My heart sank.

Because of his gestational age, there were already a neonatologist and NICU nurse waiting to rescue my baby. Thanks to the knowledge, expertise and family-like care they provided for him, he is now over 5 pounds and coming close to moving home.

The neonatologists were approachable, knowledgeable, available for questions and open with what they were doing for his care. The nurses protected him, nurtured him, answered my million questions and were so incredibly patient with my fiancé and me as we tried to navigate this situation. We never had a reason to fear.

Ten days after giving birth, I found myself in Wellington Regional’s ER with a right MCA stroke. The surgeons went in and removed my clot, effectively leaving no trace of a scar or lingering clots. The nurses in the SICU and step-down units were great about helping me get to the NICU to see my son and bringing my milk down to the unit for him.

Because of the collaborative effort of the doctors, nurses, occupational therapists, respiratory therapists, etc., I have no lasting effects of the stroke.

It was a crazy time for my family. The angels at Wellington Regional helped make it a lot easier than it could have been.

Thank you, Wellington Regional, for saving my son and me!
