Letter: Kudos to staff at Kamloops hospital

It is within this reality that we extend our deepest gratitude to Dr. Chevalier and the nursing team of Royal Inland Hospital’s intensive-care unit on the sixth floor of the north tower.

Their professionalism, unparalleled skills and obvious caring for a positive outcome from my recent bout of cancer surgery speaks volumes to how fortunate we are to have access to such talented individuals.

Say what you will about our health care system, but it is comforting to know we have it.

Finally, a huge thank you to doctors Peter Gorman, Stephen Faddegon and Thinn Pwint for their rapid diagnosis, response and support.
