Letter to the editor

I just came home last Friday from a 20 day stay in the new Polk Medical Center. I was there recuperating from open heart surgery, I know this will surprise many people who thought I had no heart.

I just want to say that Polk County is extremely fortunate to have this facility

The nursing staff are courteous,considerate, and professional. The therapist are knowledgeable, and extremely helpful and even the cleaning staff take pride in a job well done

Meals were as tasty as could be and still meet nutritional guidelines, well prepared and appetizely presented My only complaint was the bed, do they come in queen size?

I would recommend the New Polk General Hospital rehab unit to anyone having need of a facility like this and repeat that Cedartown and Polk County are extremely lucky to have it.
