Sarah Pfammatter

My name is Sarah Pfammatter. In September of 2008 we had our first experience with Little Company of Mary Hospital when we gave birth to our daughter. After the birth we couldn't stop talking about how amazed we were by the nursing staff and how they allowed us to give birth the way we wanted and not the way they dictated. We discussed how everyone was so nice an...

Sara Bove

I was recently admitted onto the 3rd floor after being rushed to the Emergency Room last week on Wednesday, October 20th. I ended up staying in room 3395 from October 20 - 22nd, 2010 and had to have 3 blood transfusions. In that time, I had a wonderful night shift nurse, who took extremely thoughtful and diligent care of me. Unfortunately, I only know her name is Tra...

During both pregnancies and deliveries,...

Richard Falzone

Dear Dr. Kern,
On Tuesday, May 4, 2010 I had an appointment in the Sleep Disorder lab for a sleep study.
This was a
follow up to a new oral appliance I have been fitted with. This followed an
unsuccessful attempt seven years ago using CPAP.

Patricia and Donald Bellheimer

This letter is in regards to a wonderful Hospice Nurse that you have working for your establishment. Her name is Kathy Cronin. My mother, Annette Bellheimer had passed away on August 11, 2009. Kathy is the most caring, gracious, kind and loving person that I have encountered. I believe that Kathy goes above and beyond to make the patient and their families as comfort...

Dear Mr. Reilly,

In this day and age, I think people spend far too much time finding issue and not enough time recognizing something special. I'd like to take a minute to do ju...

Dear Mr. Reilly,

I was a patient at Little Company of Mary Hospital on May 20, 2010, for a lung biopsy. This card is to inform you that I am highly satisfied with your hospital.

Charlene Henry

My name is Charlene Heery. Dr. Richard Farrell referred me to see Debbie Murray R.N., B.S.N., C.D.E. at the Diabetes Center because my sugar was wild! When I met her for the first time she was so helpful and put me on the right road to good health and a better life. She is a valuable person and helps people like me who could be in some bad health. I came all the way ...

Singer Family

Dear Friends at LCM Hospice,

It may seem unusual to receive a note so late after the passing of a loved one but I wanted to not simply send a card but share my personal thanks for your presence in our lives. As I reflect back since the spring when Virgil was diagnosed, I time and again am overwhelmed with how truly blessed our family has been. We have been...

Approximately one month ago, I suffered from an acute allergic reaction causing Urticaria as well as episodes of frightening weakness, lightheadedness and heart palpitations.

The entire staff was wonderful, but Bill Brady and Alexis Munoz absolutely stand ...

"As much of the pain and suffering that I and the other chaplains experience each day, I can say God has been good to me- I've never had a bad working day in my life. I'm pleased and proud that I can be here and be part of this mission. The people here are people who will make sacrifices to keep Little Company on top. This is how God is here at Litt...

Felicia Hill -Food Services

I consider my giving an investment in the future because I love the hospital. My doctors are here, my mother's doctors are here, and I would do anything to keep the doors open and help the hospital keep with the latest technology. There's a real sense of family here. You could get a job at a lot of places, but it's work, you don't feel any love. It...

Marie Moore, RN -Patient Care Services

"I think the Crisis Fund, in particular, speaks to employees and we want to support it. It provides help to people who might have emergency medical needs, or a spouse has lost a job or they're having trouble paying their bills. But through it all, they still come to work and help care for our patients. That's the kind of people who work here."

Carolyn Paulius, RN 3SW

"I give because the hospital has given me so many opportunities. Here, I transformed from a CNA to a nursing student to a nurse, and I had so many wonderful mentors. I give because this is family; it's not just a job with a paycheck. The second I started working here I felt completely welcome, and that's why I want to give back."

Hector Diaz -Linen Services

"I've been at Little Company of Mary since 1979. It was the first job I got when I came to this country. My two sons were born here and now both of them work here, too. I started giving right when I started. Whatever I have is thanks to the nuns and this hospital. So, I give. It's not too much, but I give. I love this hospital."

Dennis O'Malley

In Health Care, either you remain on the cutting edge or you get left behind. This project will allow Little Company to continue the standard of excellence they've provided to all of us for so many years, and allow them to do so for the next 100 years. I want to make sure Little Company is a viable part of our community for our children and our grandchildren. We need th...
