THANK YOU 04.26.14

I FELT COMPELLED to take this opportunity to give praise and a hats off to the Jack C. Montgomery Veterans Medical Center in Muskogee.

I was recently a patient there on 4 East and was treated with royalty from the professional staff to the support personnel. All medications and meals and other aspects of a patient’s stay were always timely and administered with the highest degree of professionalism. I would indeed urge any honorably discharged Veteran to use this facility as the quality of care is great.

So often we do not pass on when something is good because basically all we hear now is something negative, so I wanted to pass on this good news.

To the administrators and staff of the Jack C. Montgomery Medical Center, continue to provide the quality of care that I received and thank you.
