While driving to work one morning Ross Elliott started having chest pains and luckily Four Counties Health Services was there to help.

“They took no time to do a few tests to find out that I had a heart attack. I would like to thank all the staff at Four Counties health Services for all their assistance and knowledge during my short stay with my coronary problem.” The doctors, nursing staff and nurse practitioners are exceptional at what they do and everyone should be thankful we have such an excellent hospital in our community. I am very grateful for their expertise and heart, because I may have had a different outcome if not for them. My whole family and extended family have used FCHS for years and are very grateful for them being there.

I am here today to spend time with my wife and 2 boys because of FCHS and their excellent staff. Driving to another hospital may have been too late.

Next time it could be YOU or someone YOU love going thru the same experience and without donations from the community, FCHS may not be there for you when you need them.

If we don’t have this rural hospital, it could be a matter of life and death (literally).

Our late father Ralph was very happy to hear of the planned hospital at the four corners back in the early 1960's and was enthusiastic about supporting this new community effort. He knew it was important to have health services available nearby, not only for emergencies but also for in-hospital care.

Dad realized that a patient could likely have their own doctor caring for them and family members wouldn't have to travel long distances to visit. It was important for both Mom and Dad to be involved in the community fundraising events as well as donating toward the purchase of special equipment or required upgrades.

Also, our mother Margaret volunteered to set up the library at the hospital in the early days. Mom really enjoyed the time she spent there being able to help out.

Even though our family now lives far from the area, we continue our parents’ legacy of giving to FCHS Foundation. This year when the family got together to assist Mom with her yearly donations, Four Counties Hospital came to mind right away. It's nice to continue the small legacy that Dad got us all involved in so many years ago.

When I was a teenager living in West Lorne, my Dad had to take me to Four Counties Hospital in the middle of the night. I had left my contacts in too long. The doctors knew just what to do to take away the severe pain I had in my eyes. That was my first experience with Four Counties Hospital.

Later as a mother living in Glencoe, I visited the Emergency room often for my children's broken bones, cut fingers, sore throats, ear infections, and fevers. We always left after being well looked after.

My husband and I over the years have had x-rays, ultrasounds, blood tests, colonoscopies, physical therapy, and our own emergency visits. We are always very satisfied with the care we receive.

Recently my dad was a patient in the beautiful palliative care room. He and our family were treated with kindness, consideration, empathy, and love. The doctors, nurses, and many other staff members treated us like their own family. We were so appreciative of the care Dad received. When Dad pass away we asked that the memorial donations be made to the hospital in his memory.

Our little local hospital (as I like to call it) means so much to my family. I brag about it to all our city friends. We are so fortunate to have such a well-equipped facility right in our own community. With everyone's support, Four Counties Health Services will be here for many years to come.
