Meet Walker: A Finley Baby
They made us feel so comfortable. My nurse was always checking in and making sure me and my husband were good and had everything we needed. During these crazy times, I was definitely nervous to be in the hospital delivering a newborn. But our nurses took that nervousness away and just made us feel like whatever was going on outside our room wasn't happening. To read more, click here.
Meet Merrick: A Finley Baby
What we appreciated most during our stay was how all the nurses and providers kept their composure and did their jobs as normal, considering the circumstances surrounding the current pandemic. It has got to be a very stressful time to be a nurse/doctor during times like these and not a single provider acted like it phased them, even considering all of the extra PPE they had to wear, which had to be extremely uncomfortable. Our healthcare workers are true heroes during this time, and we couldn't be more thankful of the excellent care we received from those at Finley Hospital! To read more, click here.
