Exceptional care – “A special note of appreciation for the personalized care and attention my father Jack received from nurses Sara and Urgyen during his recent stay.

Jack is home and doing great and I credit his speedy recover to the post-op care of these two exceptional individuals.” – Lisa Arbuckle Nurses Sara (second from left) and Urgyen (third from left) with members of their Quinte 6

From the moment my wife and I arrived at QHC North Hastings Hospital, we felt that I was taken care of and listened to. From the triage nurse, to a quick registration over the phone and the short wait before being called in to see the doctor, our path of care was quick and seamless.

Care and compassion – “I can't get over the care I received at Trenton Memorial Hospital. The nurse Nancy (Graham - pictured) at triage took all the info and I was sent over to Registration. She noticed that I was in pain due to bee stings and brought me over some medicine. In the bed, Nancy (Hill), another nurse, was awesome as well.

It meant a great deal to me.” - Karen Napolitano Nancy Graham, RN
