April 15, 2009: Margaretville Hospital is a lifesaver


To The Editor:
Late last March I had a severe medical emergency and managed to get to the Margaretville Hospital EMS. There, Steve Carson, Barbara Hendrickson and Greg Forsman revived me with all the appropriate medical treatment, summoned a helicopter evacuation and sent me off to Albany for emergency surgery. Their prompt, skilled, and efficient work saved my life.
I would like to use my example to remind Margaretville of the medical gem we have in our midst. I, like many others, have taken this treasure for granted for years.
I would encourage you to support this vital municipal resource by contributing your donations as follows: Emergency Department, Margaretville Hospital, 42084 State Highway 28, Margaretville, NY 12455.
