Too often we hear the negative, rather than the positive side of things. My husband and I disagree with the criticism in the Rimbey Review of our local doctors and our local health care system. In each of those letters to the editor, we of course, only heard one side of the story. We wonder what the other side of the story would be.
We, along with our four parents, have spent most of our lives in this community. Over the years, we have accessed the services of all our local doctors, the staff in acute and long-term care, the staff at the Rimbey Medical Centre and have also accessed the services provided by the Community Health Care. Three of our four parents received palliative care in the Rimbey Health Care Centre for several months and on a few occasions, we have had to access emergency services.
In other words, after a period of many decades, we feel that we are much more familiar with Rimbey’s doctors and health care providers than the occasional user from outside the community. In the medical services supplied to us, we have always been treated with the utmost respect, professionalism, compassion and kindness. We happen to think we have excellent doctors and health care providers in this town.
We salute all of you who are involved in the medical care system. Thank you from those of us who consider ourselves truly blessed with our doctors and the quality of services provided in Rimbey.
